A community of practice dedicated to sharing and developing knowledge to improve urban public school facilities and the communities they serve.


POLICY (Public Process and Engagement)

The State Department of Education should require that school districts, their boards of education, and administrative staff utilize an open, public process when making site and school specific decisions concerning school facilities. This should include decisions related to school renovations, school additions, school replacements, new schools, school closings and consolidation, the disposition of surplus schools and/or property, site selection, and school design features and components.
