Guidelines and Standards for the Technology Infrastructure of 21st Century Educational Facilities.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Office of Facilities Planning.
New York State Regents directed that new guidelines and "standards" be developed for technology infrastructures in educational facilities in order to assist administrators and educators in planning technology integration during retrofits, renovations, or new construction of educational facilities. This document provides the first draft of these guidelines that respond primarily to the needs of rehabilitation and modernization projects, but also can be used for new construction. The guidelines are broken down into nine areas as follows: Environmental/Life Safety; Planning for Electrical Power; Lighting; Space Planning and Pathways; Structured Cable Plants; Libraries; Security; Wireless Systems; and Distance Learning Capabilities. Appendices presents information regarding asbestos regulations and resource addresses. (GR)
