            1.         All the activities that will take place in the building;

            2.         The curriculum to be housed in the building;

            3.         Specific architectural characteristics desired; and

            4.         The facilities needed their equipment requirements and their space relationship to other facility elements.


            When educational specifications are prepared, an introductory section will also be included which will be devoted to a brief description of the community and the educational philosophy of the division.  Consultants may be used in the development of educational specifications when deemed necessary by the superintendent and approved by the School Board.
