The Ohio School Design Manual is a comprehensive set of standard guidelines for the design of school facilities. The manual was developed by OSFC staff, in cooperation with architects and nationally recognized educational planners.
The design manual sets necessary minimum standards of quality for the state’s educational facilities and provides a flexible set of guidelines to serve the diverse needs of local school communities and the children they serve. The design manual is updated annually.
The OSDM is available for download. A complete copy of the Ohio School Design Manual is also available on CD at no charge. To order the CD, fill out the order form and send it to us or contact OSFC at (614) 466-6290.
