TEMPORARY SCHOOL FACILITIES
When the student enrollment exceeds the capacity of existing school buildings, the Board of Education shall, in anticipation of the completion of a building project designed to alleviate this condition, investigate the various ways in which this classroom shortage may be met.
Availability of suitable spaces in existing buildings in the district, temporary reassignment of spaces in school buildings, and rental or purchase of re-locatable units are ways in which this need may be met. In choosing which method is best, factors to be considered are suitability for teaching and learning, student health and safety, transportation and economy.
The Board recognizes that the approval, annually, by the State Education Department is required for all temporary quarters.
When a condition has been discovered to exist in a school building which makes it dangerous to the health or safety of students, the Board shall declare that an emergency exists, and order such building, or portion thereof, closed until the condition can be remedied. If the type of emergency is such that such school evacuation must be prolonged, steps shall be taken to secure other housing for the affected students, following the steps outlined above.
