Renovating Older Schools: Reusing Older Schools Workshop.
Mississippi State Univ., Mississippi State. Educational Design Inst.
A slide presentation examines the decisionmaking process behind whether a community should renovate their older school facilities or abandon them for new facilities. Three factors to be considered in this decision are addressed and involve the school's location, the history of the school, and the relationship of the school to the community and the opportunities the older school affords. Each factor is examined and examples of school design are provided, including modifying double loaded corridors to provide resource areas and clustering learners to promote collaboration. (Contains 12 PowerPoint slide printouts.) (GR)
