These records are housed in the Utah State Archives' permanent storage room.

Scope and Content

This series consists of two specific types of documents related to school buildings in Utah for initial construction, and additions and modifications to and remodelings of existing buildings. The first type of documents, plans, may include schematics, bid, working, and as-built drawings. The second type, specifications, may also be known as project manuals and are usually bound volumes. These volumes contain bid process instructions and specifications as to materials and methods that must be used in the construction process. The State Office of Education regularly received copies of these documents as part of the oversight process for school construction: a signature from a representative of the Office often appears with signatures from other state and local agency representatives involved in the school planning and building activities, such as the State Fire Marshal.

Arrangement

Chronological by date.

The filmed records are arranged chronologically by filming batch. Most are arranged thereunder alphabetically by school district name. Most of the alphabetical district arrangements have the city school districts (such as Provo, Logan, Park City, and Ogden) at the end of the listings following the county and non-city districts (such as North Summit and South Sanpete). In some filming batches the city districts are included in the general alphabetical listing by district name or may be included with the records fro the larger district surrounding the city district (i.e. the Logan district would immediately follow the Cache County District records). The exceptions to the alphabetical arrangement by school district name are the 1966-1969, 1978-1979, 1978-1980, and 1979-1980 filmings which are arranged numerically by plan number. Plan numbers were apparently assigned in chronological order by date of the project proposal. The boxes of hard copy are also arranged alphabetically by school district name, thereunder alphabetically by name of school.

Research Note

Plans and specifications may not both be available for each project. The school name index will indicate which are available. The hard copy consists of specifications related to the projects appearing in the first film batch covering the years of 1911-1948.
