SITE SELECTION AND DEVELOPMENT

The School Board believes that site selection and development starts from the premise that the school is an integral part of the total community. Toward that end, the Board will advise the borough whenever a school site is to be selected. Besides serving our district's educational needs, an adequate site should show potential for contributing to other community needs and functions. In addition, the following factors shall be considered:

  1. Size of lot, current and future parking needs and outdoor facilities, such as tracks and fields.
  2. Soil and gradation considerations.
  3. Access to utilities.
  4. Conflicts with existing traffic patterns.

(cf.0430- Community School Program)

Note: Pursuant to 4 AAC 31.080, with prior state approval, a district may purchase an existing facility for use as an education-related facility if a cost savings results, if the purchase price was fairly negotiated and meets the appraisal standards, and if the purchase is in the best interests of the state and district.
