Outage management concepts applied to school project

Projects to renovate schools usually disrupt the education process. This article profiles how the West Allegheny School District (Oakdale, PA, USA) renovated its two elementary schools, middle school, high school, and athletic facilities to transform buildings constructed during the 1960s into educational environments capable of accommodating the demands of contemporary learning and the interests of today's students. In doing so, it explains the process--the outage management philosophy, never before used in this region--that the school district used to complete its project under budget and within three months, during the summer break of 1992, an effort realized without disrupting its educational process.
