Abstract

The Natural Resources Council of Maine is urging the Maine State Board of Education to do away with the rule that mandates that new schools conform to acreage requirements. The rule requires that new high school sites have 15 acres plus one acre per 100 students, and is responsible for Brunswick building its new high school in a rural area instead of downtown. The NRCM says doing away with the rule would enable students to walk to school, which would decrease the demand for new buses and reduce development sprawl in rural areas.
