This guide is designed to assist school districts in selecting school sites that provide both a safe and supportive environment for the instructional program and the learning process, and gain state approval for the selected sites. The guide includes a set of selection criteria that have proven helpful to site selection teams, information about safety factors that should be considered when evaluating potential school sites, and the procedures school districts must follow to gain approval from the California Department of Education for new sites and for additions of land areas to existing sites. Appendices contain an outline of the site selection process; an evaluation checklist for school bus driveways; school site field review, approval procedures, report, and approval letter; the final site approval letter; the factors to be included in geological and environmental hazards reports; reference to codes; and a walkability checklist.
