Development of a Model for a School Facilities Construction Program: Congruence of Building Programs under the Ohio School Building Assistance Program with the Model.
Dubbs, Philip E.
This descriptive study involving interviews with school district superintendents assesses the congruence to a School Facilities Construction Model by school districts participating in the 1983 to 1990 round of Ohio School Building Assistance Projects. Chapter 1 introduces a general background on the need for studying the amount of congruence to a construction model developed from school construction literature by districts that have participated in Ohio's School Building Assistance Program. Chapter 2 reviews the literature related to planning, designing, contracting, evaluating, occupying, and establishing a preventive maintenance program for a new school facility. Chapter 3 describes the research design and methodology used and the population and interview format. Chapter 4 presents a model which identifies the key components of a building program derived from the literature review. Chapter 5 presents the results of the research and an analysis of the findings. The final chapter discusses the significance and implications of this research for future Ohio superintendents about to begin a school building program and offers suggestions for further research. Appendices present the interview schedule, a list of the panel of experts and school building assistance districts and superintendents interviewed, study correspondence, and a summary of each interview.
