K-12 Master Planning and Educational Specifications
In November 2017, Austin voters approved a $1.1B bond for the Austin Independent School District ("AISD"). I was part of an team at Brailsford & Dunlavey that analyzed countless data sets, collaborated with the community, and drafted a facilities master plan that would guide for the next 25 years.
Building on my experience in zoning, I was the lead analyst assigned to updating the DCPS Educational Specifications ("Ed Specs"). Ed specs define the minimum requirement for learning spaces. Over the last five years ed specs are transitioning to being more use-based rather than prescriptive.
Both the FMP and the ed specs required a variety of community engagement strategies. I was able to apply my expertise in community engagement, as well as, my analytical background to help both the DC and Austin communities.
