- In selecting the site for a new school, a school
district must consider four basic characteristics of a good
site: size, physical features, location and costs. The size
must be adequate to meet the state minimum standards and
provide for future expansion. The physical features, soil,
relief and slope should provide a well drained building base
while keeping developmental costs at a minimum. A good location
provides for safe, easy access for present and future
enrollments while minimizing transportation costs. A good
site is one that will exhibit excellent size, physical
features and location while minimizing costs.
This paper compares the Crescent Valley site selected
by the Corvallis School District for its new high school with
alternative sites available in 1966 but not considered by the
district. The alternative sites were located in the Village
Green district and 29th and Walnut Boulevard. Each site was
evaluated through the use of a standardized school site rating
form. The 29th and Walnut site possessed the highest ratings
and would have been the best site available for the construction
of a new high school.
