School Facilities: The State Department's Influence
Holt, Carleton R.; Smith, Roland M.; Capps, Matthew A.
AASA Journal of Scholarship & Practice, v1 n3 p6-10 Fall 2004
Of the challenges facing educational leaders, among the most pressing is the need for suitable facilities. School buildings in the US are aging at an alarming rate. The obstacles to acquiring needed resources are formidable. In this document, the authors focus on the importance of consulting with your state department of education regarding construction regulations and alternative levels of funding. To determine the involvement of this agency, a survey with State Department Facilities Directors was conducted in six mid-south states. The results demonstrate the differing levels of state involvement in local school bond or millage levies. This study will provide leaders with an understanding of state and federal regulations concerning school bond or millage elections. (Contains 3 figures.)
