The Development of Educational Specifications.
North Carolina State Board of Education, Raleigh.
This publication is intended to assist local boards of education, superintendents, and staff in the organization and development of educational specifications. It was written because most educators have little knowledge about the purpose, process, organization, or contents of the finished product (educational specifications). It provides a conceptual background and suggested organizational framework for the content of the completed document. Part 1 offers a conceptual and operating primer on what educational specifications are, why they are developed, how they are organized, and who should be involved and in what way (professional staff, parents, students, auxiliary services personnel, design professionals, and educational consultants). Part 2 offers more specific information on the organization and content of the educational specifications document, including an introduction and background, general design considerations, and educational activities and user requirements. It includes a skeleton for the specifications that will permit a high degree of flexibility for adaptation to the variations of local situations, while at the same time providing sufficient guidance for the educator who does not know where to start. Two appendixes present possible elementary and secondary school subcommittee organizations and planning data. (SM)
