School Building Renovation and Student Performance: One District's Experience.
Maxwell, Lorraine E.
A case study explores the importance of the educational setting and its affect on student learning, performance, attitude, and behavior. The study focuses on the facilities planner's perspective and raises important questions needing further study. Among the study's findings are the importance of timing in a school district's renovation projects, and a demonstrated positive relationship between upgraded school facilities and math achievement. Thoughts on facility/student relationship research needs and design conclude the article. (Contains 14 references.) (GR)
