8 Defining Capacity O Building Planning Capacity O student enrollment that a school can best serve while fully utilizing its physical facilities. O combination of factors: O the number of teaching stations available, O the area of auxiliary spaces, and O the adopted program for a school of that level. O Capacity number is used for planning proposes, O enrollment boundaries O building utilization levels. O Each individually facility may be capable of handling physically many more students than its planning capacity, O The Planning Capacity is a practical capacity that provides for an easily understood and comparable number between facilities, as well as, providing an optimal operating size.

9 Defining Capacity - Elementary O Defined simply as 25 students per classroom multiplied by the number of classrooms O Classroom Size Factor O Reduced by 2 students with an average classroom size below 750 square feet O Reduced another 1 student if the average classroom size is below 650 square feet. O For example, building has 15 classrooms; the Planning Capacity would be 375, (25 x 15). If the room sizes were 725 sq. ft, the capacity would be 345, (23 x 15).

10 Defining Capacity – Junior High School O The Junior High capacity is defined utilizing 150 students for every four classrooms and one science lab. O Additionally, there is a minimum of one Art and Life Skills labs for every 750 students. O Each Junior High will have a band room, general music/vocal room, O Three rooms for special service programs

11 Defining Capacity – High School O High School capacity is defined as 175 Students for every four classrooms and one science lab. O One Art, Life Skills and Tech Arts Areas/Labs per 800 students. O Other areas are required and are determined by the curriculum and extra-curricular activities. O band and vocal music facilities O performing arts areas O athletic facilities. O Six classrooms for special service programs.

12 Capacity Analysis

13 Building Information O Building Data Record O Building Age & Square Footage O Construction Timeline O Demographic Information O Enrollment O Free and Reduced Lunch O Information on Program Spaces O Information on Building Systems O Technology O Major Projects O Floor Plans O Aerial Site Plan O Attendance Map

15 Renewal & Replacement Schedule

17 Facilities Conditions and Student Performance O Studies support educators common sense - Students do better when they: O Hear well O See well O Are not packed into small spaces O Noise is not distracting O Lighting is good O Air Quality is good O Heat and cooling are balanced

18 Facilities Conditions and Student Performance O Educational Delivery O Milwaukee study suggest facility conditions have stronger affect on performance than other factors, such as family background, socio- economic status, attendance and behavior O Indoor Air Quality O About 40% of schools report unsatisfactory environmental conditions

19 Facilities Conditions and Student Performance O Temperature & Ventilation O Good ventilation systems are effective in keeping toxic and nuisance materials out of the air. O Acoustics O Studies have linked student hearing problems with being held back a grade O Lighting O The visual environment is one of the most important factors in learning, affecting mental attitude, class attendance, and performance

20 Facility Appraisal

21 Appraisal Instrument O An Appraisal Guide for Older & Historic School Facilities O Developed by The Council of Educational Facility Planners International O A tool to evaluate the physical condition and educational adequacy of older and historic school facilities, and is designed to engage a broad audience in the appraisal process.

22 Appraisal Criteria O Educational Adequacy O Educational Environment O The School Site O Building Safety and Security O Structural Condition and Electrical & Mechanical Systems O Plant Maintainability

23 Appraisal Team O Team Members O Bill Sanders – QHS O Mike Carter – Klinger & Assoc. O Todd Moore – Architechnics, Inc. O Dave Schlembach - Poepping, Stone, Bach & Associates, Inc. O Dan Nutt – QPS Maint Dept O Dane Barnes – QPS Maint Dept O Dennis Peters – QPS Maint Dept O Rick Selsor – QPS Maint Dept O Rick Owsley – QJHS O Joel Murphy, Facilitator – QPS

24 Initial Findings

25 O “Great Schools”, not so Great Facilities O “A good teacher can teach anywhere” O Physical Structure is limiting the learning experience O No Facility Rated higher than Satisfactory O Only one Elementary was rated Satisfactory O 7 out of 12 of our active facilities were rated Borderline O Grade Alignment out of sync with current practices

26 Initial Findings O Smaller Elementary Schools generate some operational inefficiencies O Large Intermediate School causes logistical and operational issues O Small Elementary & Intermediate Classrooms – Avg 750 Sq Ft O Undersized Gym & Cafeterias O Multiple Lunch Periods O Limited PE Activities O Relationship between spaces limiting O Restrooms located only on one floor O Movement restricted by Multi-Leveled buildings O Old and outdated Building designs limiting programs O Lack of Specialized Learning Areas O No Art Rooms O Music taught in converted classrooms or other spaces

27 Initial Findings O Library well undersized O Technology Access Limited O Computer Labs small or lacking O Low computer to student ratios O Space for teacher resource areas limited O Administrative Spaces very limited

28 Initial Findings O Most Elementary sites too small, lack adequate open space and parking O Most Elementary sites too small to allow for expansion of building O Vehicular & Pedestrian Traffic patterns not separated O Site Ingress/Egress Issue at Elementary sites O Bus Drop Off Areas O Parent Drop Off Areas O Staff/Visitor Parking

29 Initial Findings O Inability to meet ADA Requirements w/o extensive work O Deterioration due to ages of facilities O HVAC Inadequate O Fresh air exchange O Individual AC Units O Efficiency of older equipment O Poor Energy efficiency O Electrical system is unable to accommodate additional technology in classrooms O Trying to maintain 100+ year old buildings O Maintaining “temporary” facilities O Building systems “tired”, needed major upgrades

30 Initial Findings O Inability to meet ADA Requirements w/o extensive work O Deterioration due to ages of facilities O HVAC Inadequate O Fresh air exchange O Individual AC Units O Efficiency of older equipment O Poor Energy efficiency O Electrical system is unable to accommodate additional technology in classrooms O Trying to maintain 100+ year old buildings O Maintaining “temporary” facilities O Building systems “tired”, needed major upgrades
