Policy 9114 - SCHOOL SIZE

In order to provide guidance for planning of future school renovations or new construction, the board has established the following parameters relating to school size:

Elementary schools will have a range of classrooms from a low of 16 to a high of 32 with the capacity to serve both regular and special program populations of 300 to 600 students.

Middle schools will have the capacity to serve both regular and special program populations of 550 to 750 students.

High schools will have the capacity to serve both regular and special program populations of 1,000 to 1,500 students.

In the planning for any renovation or new school construction, the board directs the staff to make provisions for adequate core facilities; such as, physical education space, kitchen and dining room facilities, itinerant accommodations, and staff planning and lounge areas.
