School Officials Study Facility Costs.

Web Abstract: 
A rural school district in Arizona, facing a huge population boom, is using public and private partnerships coupled with simple school design to pay for much needed new schools. Rather than ask residents for more bond money, the Higley district has managed the growth by partnering with local government agencies and private groups to build new schools that serve as multi-use facilities. The article also discusses a new computer program in place in Fulton County, Georgia that helps school officials predict growth patterns and locate new schools in areas where they will be most effectively utilized.
