School Facilities

The American Federation of School Administrators (AFSA) believes that all students must have an environment that is conducive to learning.  The physical infrastructure of our nation’s schools must meet a variety of needs including the ability to accommodate the number of students, accessibility for persons with disabilities, conducive to changing teaching methods and instruction, technology implementation, and meet all health and safety requirements.  School facilities must also be well constructed, energy efficient, and aesthetically pleasing.  AFSA feels that stable and sufficient funding must be provided for the operation and maintenance of all public school facilities.  AFSA also strongly supports the need to follow OSHA guidelines and regulations in the construction and maintenance of all public school structures.
