As part of the update to our district’s 2009 High School Educational Specifications document, we will collaborate with an educational planner during the 2012-2103 school year.
In developing a High School project, the educational vision must be clear. From this vision an Educational Specification (Ed Spec) is developed. The Ed Spec details each room of the building as well as spatial relationships. The selected design professional will use the Ed Spec to develop schematic designs. While development of the vision and the Ed Spec will be driven by the State College School District Staff, a detailed process must be developed and outside professional resources may be needed.
The board voted to approve the selection of Brainspaces, Inc., an experienced educational planning professional, to help facilitate the process and obtain input from our staff and entire school community as part of the visioning process. The process will focus on present and future educational programming and experiences for students, which are the most critical aspects of any construction/renovation project.
The development and refinement of our educational specifications document is a requirement of Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Planning Construction (PlanCon) process. Should you have any questions regarding this process, please contact Mr. Michael Hardy, Assistant Superintendent, 814-231-1042
