  • 4. Design Guidelines 21ST CENTURY CLASSROOMSVisionThese design guidelines provide a framework for thecreation of 21st century classrooms in the Oakland UnifiedSchool District. All designs will follow the Collaborative forHigh Performance Schools (CHPS) best practices, andenable sustainable maintenance and cleaning practices.Fundamentally, classroom updates will support teachingand learning. In particular, facilities renovations will alignwith curricular and pedagogical development.Regarding technology, it is essential that classrooms will Fhave the capability to support evolving uses of technology, T Awith respect to both new equipment and infrastructuralneeds. As much as possible, facility designs should support Rthe inclusion of students with different needs. OUSD iscommitted to making facilities accessible to students of all Dabilities, and all facilities must comply with the Americanswith Disabilities Act.The focus of these set of design guidelines will be centeredaround general-purpose classrooms in the district, as wellas STEM facilities. The objective of these guidelines is toprepare facilities to support any form of curricularpedagogies the district chooses to accept, but notdetermine any operations regarding programimplementation.
