Assessing the Need.
Georgia Governor's Office, Atlanta.
This issue paper presents an assessment of Georgia's need for schools facilities--both current need as well as the additional need created by law HB 1187. This paper identifies the current unmet needs of the state, which are primarily in the fastgrowing systems. For the purposes of this paper, the current unmet needs are addressedseparately from the impact of HB 1187. The pre-HB 1187 needs are identified from the facilities plans in terms of classroom additions, new schools, renovations, and modifications. The needs are expressed not only in terms of units but also in terms of eligible costs at a standard state rate that is applied to all systems. The rate varies between types of facilities and level of school. Then, the impact of HB 1187 is examined and an estimate of the additional need for classrooms as a result of HB 1187 is provided. That need is expressed at this point in terms additional classrooms needed. For illustrative purposes only, the number of additional classrooms or instructional units is broken into new schools and additions. No definitive cost estimates are provided at this point until all 180 facilities plans can be examined with local facilities personnel to determine how many of these additional classrooms would be accommodated in new schools.
