In June 2018, the Work Group on Educational Development Specifications was formed (Chapter 14, Acts of 2018).
First, the Work Group is to review the square footage allocations currently used to calculate the State maximum allowable square footage for a project, and determine whether any requirements are overly restrictive and if alternative methodologies might be more efficient use of space. The school design standards and guidelines of the State Department of Education also will undergo review to ensure that they are not overly specific and aligned with space allowances for specific types of space. Further, the Work Group will scrutinize the use of regional cost-per-square-foot figures in the annually established State cost-per-square-foot figures. The State Rated Capacity process is to be reviewed by the Work Group, as well as the cost-per-student of school construction projects in both new or replacement schools and major renovations of existing facilities, in order to examine the differences of cost per student in various local jurisdictions.
