Oakland Unified School District
EDUCATIONAL SPECIFICATION DESIGN GUIDELINES
A detailed facility requirement for the academic and support service programs operating in the Oakland Unified School District
With a strategic vision to create “a Full Service Community School District,” the Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) engaged MKThink to develop Educational Specification Design Guidelines. MKThink developed physical design guidelines and functional requirements for rooms, building systems, and school grounds and included additional guidelines to adequately accommodate new patterns of use, enable shared access, and provide improved security throughout the day. MKThink worked closely with OUSD staff and school facility experts to conduct a study of relevant school facility code requirements and best practices. As projects emerge, MKThink continues to help the Oakland Unified School District update its Educational Specification Design Guidelines.
