The Next Stage: Spaces4Learning

School Planning & Management is evolving. Beginning with the next issue, we will become Spaces4Learning. More than just a name change, Spaces4Learning heralds a new direction for our publication and a vastly expanded scope.

The education sector is changing. Technology is driving radical transformations in all aspects of schools, colleges and universities — from planning and management to teaching and learning. We needed a new publication that would address these changes in the market in both K–12 and post-secondary education.

Spaces4Learning will expand the coverage previously offered by SP&M and our higher education sister publication, College Planning & Management, incorporating education technology and spotlighting some of the latest trends in the integration of technology and space design and management, from esports arenas to school makerspaces — all while continuing to focus on the nuts and bolts of design, operation and maintenance of K–12 and higher education facilities.

We’re launching Spaces4Learning as both a brand new print publication and a new website (spaces4learning.com) loaded with original content and a wealth of resources. We’re even launching some new offerings, including in-person events, podcasts, newsletters and webcast series. And, of course, Spaces4Learning will continue to offer expert tips, in-depth features, exclusive insights and up-to-the-minute news.

I sincerely hope you enjoy this final issue of School Planning & Management in its current form and look forward to delivering the all-new Spaces4Learning to you in December!
