Educational Specifications for Renovations and New Construction for the Madison Public Schools.
Madison Public Schools, CT.
The educational specifications included in this document were prepared by the Madison, Connecticut public schools for Connecticut's State Department of Education School Facilities Unit. The result of a school facilities study, the specifications were prepared to serve two purposes: first, to fulfill state requirements regarding reimbursement for school building projects, and second, to allow board members and educators a method of describing the district's educational activities and their implications for necessary facilities and learning spaces. In short, the document provides guidelines to design professionals charged with renovating or constructing school facilities. The document's sections address in detail: the school facility study, enrollment projections and design capacity, school organization, the project overview, educational programming in school facilities, instructional program facility requirements, support facilities, internal traffic and circulation, systems, environment, community uses, and site development.
