Santa Fe Public Schools Facilities Master Plan. Elementary School Planning Standards.
Santa Fe Public Schools, NM.
This document contains policies and standards to guide the design and evaluation of elementary schools in the Santa Fe Public School District. These policies and standards can be used for a variety of purposes: to serve as a checklist to evaluate existing schools, to identify capital outlay needs to bring all schools to minimum standards, and to serve as a basis for new school design. The document is divided into three sections addressing: (1) the school site (size, location, and quality; site accessibility; and site features); (2) school plant assessment (exterior and interior building components, heating/ventilation/air conditioning, plumbing, electrical/telecommunications, safety/security, and school plant maintainability); and (3) adequacy and environment for education (adequacy--size and relationships, and environment). (Appendices present criteria for assignable square footage, a needs analysis for a prototypical elementary school, a handicapped accessibility checklist, and an illustrative plan.) (EV)
