How Well-Run School Facilities Support and Enhance Education
October 25, 2017
.5 CTLE Credit
Beyond the typical research and statistics about healthy school environments and student outcomes, there is a movement happening among school facility directors, administrators, architects and engineers to use our school facilities and grounds for hands-on learning experiences. With the help of our facilities departments, students are planting vegetable gardens, managing composts and constructing buildings, such as sheds, on our school campuses. Our architects and engineers are involving students in construction design, while our computer science kids are building apps, producing state-of-the-art videos and websites, and takings our school communications to new levels. As our students grow more tech savvy, so do our school facilities departments. Technology, access to information and experienced, proactive leadership on state-of-the-art capital construction projects have opened doors for smarter school facility and grounds investments which yield greater returns for students and our entire school communities. The best part? A little goes a very long way. Small investments in energy efficiency, for example, can save a school district millions over time. A well though-out capital construction project from conception to execution, will save millions in cost overruns. What do the kids have to do with school facilities investments? Everything. Smart investments yield cost savings and free up resources that can be used for instruction and other school priorities. Smart investments result in healthy learning environments, which directly impacts student outcomes. The combination of a vibrant school environment and creative learning opportunities means utilization of school facilities and grounds for hands-on learning, especially in the areas of career and technical education.
