A Study of Teacher Experiences During a Renovation Project.

Web Abstract: 
Reports teacher perceptions during the renovation of two high schools in Virginia. The two high schools had the same renovation timeline, floor plan, architectural design team, and construction company. The first major finding found overall teacher satisfaction was minimally affected by the renovation project. Differences between satisfied and dissatisfied teachers involving cleanliness, considering relocating during the project, seeking a transfer to avoid another project, and room temperature were found to have significance and moderate effect sizes. While teachers at both schools felt safe during the renovation project and odor had an effect on satisfaction, satisfaction levels were different at each school. The study also concludes the need for doctoral and principal preparation programs to include information regarding the leadership role during a renovation project and how decisions may affect teacher satisfaction.
