Originally written for public school districts, The Essential Guide to School Facility Planning was released in 2016. It walks readers through a seven-step facility planning process developed by Hill, based on more than 30 years of work with school districts, to make the complex task of school facility planning and construction more manageable, efficient and cost effective. It includes methods to “program” schools to meet a district’s educational needs and to extend the usable life of school buildings. The process is illustrated with numerous real-life case studies and the book includes many valuable documents and examples in the appendices.

Of the books expanded use as a college textbook, Hill commented, “It's an honor to serve the higher education community with this process and publication and to have its value recognized.” Hill, who refers to himself as a “Schoolonomist,” currently works as Advising Consultant with School Planning Advisory Services. He consults with school districts and conducts workshops to assist with any and all aspects of school facility planning. To learn more, visit www.schoolplanningadvisor.com.
