This MARP project was conducted to address the need to construct Jupiter Elementary School. A mission statement was written prior to construction activities to provide a focus throughout the MARP implementation phase. The components of the mission statement comprised three tracks that were: (1) school construction. (2) purchasing and procurement. and (3) staff selection, staff-development, and program implementation. The demographic factors for this plan consisted of two elementary feeder-schools with similar communities located within a radius of six miles from one new school site. Both feeder-schools' student populations exceeded the plant capacities. The following strategies were designed based on the data collected from the previous five projects: (1) construct a master schedule for all components of the project. (2) develop a mission statement with components of the mission that incorporate program and academic emphasis, staff-development, and school plant/learning environment. and (3) implement methods for optimal use of fiscal resources. As a result of the MARP action plan strategy, Jupiter Elementary successfully opened July, 1991. In addition, the components of the mission statement were implemented, the fiscal resources were properly allocated to support the mission, and appropriate staff development activities unified the feeder-school faculties. Finally, the parent-community perceived Jupiter Elementary School as a positive learning environment.
