School Siting & Design Study
MetadataShow full item record
In partnership with the Georgia Conservancy, the Georgia Tech School of City and Regional Planning conducted the School Siting Studio. The Studio investigated current public school siting practices in Georgia and the impacts of these practices on the surrounding community and environment. School locations influence the overall well-being of a community and affect not only students, parents, and school staff but also virtually anyone who lives, works, plays, or commutes within the area. This Studio evaluated current Georgia practices in light of potential alternatives and best practices. Based on this evaluation, the Studio recommends changes to promote sustainable school siting practices at both the state and local.
