SCHOOL FACILITIES SURVEY

The suitability of the facilities available to a school in terms of scope and general condition has serious impact upon the ability of that school to fulfill its stated sense of purpose and mission. This section of the self-study asks the school, under the leadership of the Buildings and Ground Committee of the Parish Council, to examine the school facilities as to their impact upon the overall school operation. Concerns such as sanitation, safety, and environment meaningfully affect the teaching, learning, and formational activities that take place in the Catholic elementary school and warrant close and professional attention. Schools are encouraged to reach outside the immediate school staff, if necessary, to enlist the talents and experience of individuals who may be able to contribute to this report.
