901.5 - Educational Specifications for Facilities

Facilities and sites considered for purchase or construction by the board or currently owned by the school district and used for the education program must meet, or upon improvement be able to meet, the specifications set by the board. 

Prior to remodeling or other construction of buildings and sites the superintendent may appoint a committee of consultants, employees, citizens, or others to assist the board in developing the specifications for the new or improved buildings and sites. These specifications will be consistent with the education program, and they will provide the architect with the information necessary to determine what is expected from the facility.

The education specifications will include but not be limited to the financial resources available for the project, the definition and character of the facility, the functional use to be made of the facility, a description of specialized needs, and other pertinent information as the board deems necessary.

It is the responsibility of the superintendent [or designee] to make a recommendation to the board regarding the specifications of buildings and sites.
