To assist districts and design teams with meeting the Minimum Adequacy Guidelines for new construction and renovations, a checklist has been developed. This checklist may be used on any school and provides a quick reference to verify that the Minimum Adequacy Guidelines are being met. The checklist also has reference citations for the basis of the requirement.
