726P - Facilities Planning

The School Board is responsible for the regular operation and orderly development of all school facilities. The Board concerns itself with both short and long-range planning.

The Superintendent presents to the School Board annually, or as necessary to coordinate with the planning process of the appropriating body, a Capital Improvement Program which includes recommendations regarding timing, location, costs and savings associated with:

· new building requirements

· restoration and renewal of existing school facilities

· real estate requirements

Recommendations are supported by current demographic data and statistically valid forecast projections of membership, construction costs and instructional facilities needed.
