School Site Selection and Approval Guide.
School site selection is critical since the site can affect the size and shape of the school, which in turn can materially affect the educational program and opportunities for students. This document provides guidance for California school districts to help them select school sites that provide both a safe and supportive environment for the curriculum and the learning process, and gain approval for the selected sites. It contains information about safety factors to be considered when analyzing potential sites and procedures school districts must follow to gain site approval from the school Facilities Planning Division of the California State Department of Education. Appendices provide site review analysis checklists, office of airports procedures, evaluation checklist for school bus driveways around schools, examples of site transmittal letters, and the school site approval procedures and report form.
