Use of Excess School Space. Community Education Proven Practices II.
The Community Education Program has created a series of publications detailing successful local community education programs that have dealt with specific problem areas such as citizen participation, child abuse, and programs for dropouts. This document presents the Upper Arlington, Ohio community education program that addressed use of excess school space created from declining school enrollments. The publication is divided into three parts. Part 1 is an overview of demographic information and the history of the project. Part 2 details the steps taken to organize and implement the 3-day Community Planning Laboratory undertaken to allow the citizenry time to determine the types of alternative uses of excess school space, and make their recommendations to the Upper Arlington Board of Education and the Upper Arlington City Council. Part 3 addresses the outcomes and conclusions of the planning laboratory and the actions taken afterwards. Appendices provide a sample informational/registration brochure for attendance at the Upper Arlington Community Planning Laboratory, a description of the Warner Amex QUBE communication system that allowed the Planning Laboratory to provide information to the community and promote the Laboratory's work, and a series of program workshop reports.
