This is the document that DOE supposedly uses to decide whether there is space in schools to put new schools into the building, and then decide how to apportion the space between schools. Many people have critiqued this document, as the class size and cluster room standards are hugely inadequate. It often leaves support services and special ed services taking place in hallways and closets.
It also allots more space to charter schools than to regular schools with the following rationale:
“Determination of administrative space for charter public schools must consider the back office support structures that charter schools are required to have in place to support operations.”
