The Board directs that the construction, expansion, renovation and closing or school facilities be accomplished in a manner which will promote and maintain a desegregated fiscally and educationally sound educational environment which will provide exceptional children (handicapped and gifted) with facilities to meet their special needs and educational requirements.
Equal access to similar facilities will be provided all affected students when school facilities are closed. The burdens of displacement will be shared equitably. The effects of any proposed school closing on integration in the District will be carefully researched and considered prior to a decision.
