Phased Facilities Planning

When a school district prefers to accumulate data and develop an understanding of issues impacting the educational program and facilities over an extended period, NESDEC's Phased Facilities Planning is a good alternative. Phased Planning is also a way to spread out the cost of a comprehensive planning project over time in order to make it more affordable for a school district.

In Phased Planning, NESDEC guides the district through a series of studies focusing upon:

  • enrollment
  • demographic factors
  • educational programming
  • building capacity
  • option development

All of the separately developed study components can then be integrated into, and serve as a basis for, a comprehensive long-range planning document.
