Knott, Gerald H.; Lora, James M.; Acker, Marjorie L.; Taynton, Steven; Logan, Gladys B.; Harrell, Ronald C.
The State of North Carolina has developed a planning guide for those in the process of building, enlarging, or renovating school facilities. This guide defines and describes the educational spaces needed to support a modern, comprehensive educational program and sets minimal standards for the types and sizes of spaces required. It serves as a guide for evaluating existing facilities for functional adequacy; determining facility needs; and developing sound, long-range building plans. School space standards covered include regular classrooms, science labs, classrooms for exceptional children, arts education/theater, vocational education, media education, physical fitness areas, and commons areas. Appendices provide the state's legislation for the erection of school buildings, legislation for implementing energy-use goals, class size/teacher allotment ratios, the recommended minimum facilities for middle grades workforce development (vocational) programs, and a form for submitting deviations from state school facility standards.
