North Carolina Public Schools Facilities Guidelines.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
This document provides school systems and designers with design information that can be used as a basis for new schools, additions, and renovations when building public schools in North Carolina. Further, it serves as a planning guide for those in the process of building or renovating school facilities. The guidelines detail minimum requirements for each area of an educational facility, allowing for minor deviations in spatial requirements where design efficiency dictates. Comments and recommendations are offered for each area's guidelines. Appendices present the General Statute for erecting school buildings, feasibility and cost analysis required by the statute, class sizes and teacher allotments, suggested sizing for media center main rooms, recommended lighting systems with illumination levels, and forms for use when deviations from the guidelines are required.
