Statewide School Facilities Needs Assessment.
Legislation enacted in 1991 called for a comprehensive assessment of Idaho school facilities and established the Statewide School Facilities Needs Assessment Committee. This resulting report identifies the nature and extent of Idaho school facility needs. The assessment included an inventory of all school facilities used for instruction; an inventory of technology used by the schools; and an assessment of the physical condition of the schools, including suitability for educational purposes, ability to accommodate new technology, accessibility, and adaptability for alternative and non-traditional uses. In addition, the assessment calculated the capacity of existing permanent school buildings relative to current and projected enrollment using conservative but realistic space-use criteria. Cost estimates were prepared covering repair, renovation, and modernization of existing buildings; adaptation of buildings to effectively use new technology; and provision of additional space to appropriately house existing enrollment. Future enrollment in Idaho schools was also forecast to provide an indication of the extent of future facility needs. In accomplishing the assessment, the Committee developed a comprehensive database of information which was provided to the Department of Education for its maintenance and continuing use, along with a computer model to estimate space needs. (Eleven appendices, which constitute the majority of the document, contain assessment-related materials.) (EV)
