Alternative Use of K-12 School Buildings: Opportunities for Expanded Uses.
Lyons, John B.
This report examines the underutilization of K-12 school facilities and the hidden advantages and disadvantages in expanding K-12 school facilities beyond a 7-hour weekday. It concludes that the benefits from extending facility hours for more teaching, increased extracurricular activities, and community use appear to far outweigh the more traditional limitations on the use of school facilities. A list of ways school facilities can be used by the surrounding community is provided, followed by resources for information on schools that have already expanded the traditional use of their facilities.
