What is the Future of K12 School Design?

“I don’t know where we are going, but we sure are going”

“I don’t know where we are going, but we sure are going”

“I don’t know where we are going, but we sure are going” is a quote that I remember from Alfalfa of the Little Rascals cartoon show.  We all recognize that changes in K12 education are occurring but it is hard to predict where it will all lead and how to be prepared for it.  One of the Southeast CEFPI (Council of Educational Facility Planners International) strategic planning committees is the New Norm/New Direction Committee.  Its primary role is to identify evolving changes in education and anticipate the effects those changes will have on facility design. We have discussed items such as STEM programs, Blended Learning, Early College, procurement methodology,  Public-Private Partnerships, Charter Schools, and school security to name a few.

Please feel free to reply below with your thoughts on upcoming changes in K12  education and the impact on facility design.
