Date Built
Facility Assessment: Building
Overall: Fair
Facilities varying in terms of age, design, construction methods, and materials were reviewed to determine the condition of the district’s portfolio. Building assessments were performed to determine existing components and/or systems’ conditions at a specific point in time. The resulting information was then used to guide recommendations regarding maintenance, renovation, and/or replacement.
primary CRITERIA
  • Heating Distribution Systems
  • Life Safety: Fire Alarm
  • Means of Egress
  • Plumbing Distribution Systems
  • Security at Entry
  • Ventilation Distribution Systems
    secondary CRITERIA
  • Electrical Service
  • Facade
  • Fire Protection - Sprinklers
  • Lighting Quantity & Controls
  • Roof Membrane
  • Toilets & Fixtures
  • Windows
  • Facility Assessment: Site
    Overall: Fair
    The site evaluation team performed assessments at each school facility in the district’s portfolio. These assessments considered the quality, condition and capacity of the various exterior spaces of the facility. These spaces included, landscaped, educational, recreational, vehicular and pedestrian areas. This field effort was also complimented with a detailed study and research of the sites from web-based resources. The resulting information was then used to guide recommendations regarding maintenance, renovation, and/or replacement.
    primary CRITERIA
    ADA Accessibility
  • Drainage
  • Parking Quality
  • Site Lighting
  • Walkways, Curbs & Sidewalks
    secondary CRITERIA
    Drop Off & Pickup
  • Fencing
  • Neighborhood Streets
  • Play Areas
  • Walls/Slopes
  • Educational Facility Effectiveness: Learning Environments
    Overall: Poor
    The quality of physical environments has direct impact on educational outcomes. This analysis considers both inherent building characteristics and introduced equipment (e.g., furniture and technology), as well as the physical appearance and condition. These qualitative factors influence students’ comfort and ability to concentrate on tasks, teacher and student health, absenteeism and retention—ultimately having an impact on overall performance.
    primary CRITERIA
  • Air Quality
  • Building Ventilation
  • Environment (inviting, stimulating, comfortable)
  • Lighting Quality
  • Natural Daylighting
    secondary CRITERIA
    Adjacencies of Learning Environments
  • Finishes
  • Furniture
  • Outdoor Classrooms
  • Technology: Interactive
  • Technology: Power
  • Technology: Wireless
  • Educational Facility Effectiveness: Spaces
    Overall: Poor
    This metric compares the sizes of educational spaces to Massachusetts 963 CMR guidelines for 21st century teaching and learning in new capital projects. This quantitative analysis is important for establishing the level of adequacy of the existing spaces for educational delivery. It also indicates whether a facility is deficient/missing dedicated educational spaces normally found in buildings of its grade level and typology.
    primary CRITERIA
