There has been a lot written about school facilities over the years. Rarely has a textbook been authored by someone who has been a: Teacher, Principal, Superintendent, Educational Consultant and University Professor. Dr. Bauscher has to be one of the most experienced and notable experts in this field. This textbook is very informational for anyone striving to be in a district leadership position or who wants to better understand the world of school facilities! -- Mike Friend, PhD, retired superintendent and past director of the Association of School Administrators (Idaho)
My former School District was the fortunate recipient of getting Dr. Bauscher's services as an Educational Consultant. Rich is definitely the `Facilities expert' in the State of Idaho. His proficiency in planning new schools is top notch and superior in every way. -- Phil Homer, retired superintendent and educational lobbyist (Idaho)
It was my pleasure to have served as a School Board Trustee for over seven years under former Superintendent Dr. Rich Bauscher. Our district benefited greatly from his forward thinking in academic achievement, technology, facility preparedness as well as student and staff increases. Rich's facility expertise is well known locally, across Idaho and nationally. His knowledge and participation on various educational boards is continually being solicited. -- Tammy Gabica, former school district trustee (Idaho)
I helped hire former Superintendent Dr. Rich Bauscher and then served as the School Board Trustee Chairman for over thirteen years, alongside him. Our schools quickly became the finest and our District developed into a model for the entire State.

His in-depth knowledge in writing this textbook is one which every school administrator must get a copy. -- Steve Cluff, former School District Trustee Chairman (Idaho)
