What is school district master planning? This book explains how this planning is done, using a proven process, not theories. The process helps you avoid cost overruns, public outrage, repeated redistricting, and classrooms built in wrong places that all represent poor planning. Planning tools, steps and process check lists are discussed in rich detail, using actual case studies and the planning triangle of programs, demographics and facilities.
Kelley D. Carey is a certified city planner, a registered professional engineer, and a licensed attorney. He has over thirty five years of professional experience in multidisciplinary planning for school districts nationally.
