Kevin --  from the standard area of the website at:

ANSI/BICSI-001-2009. Information Transport Systems Design Standard for K-12 Educational Institutions


" This standard is intended to enable K-12 ITS design in the building development process by contributing to architectural considerations and providing information that cuts across multidisciplinary design efforts. Adequate planning during building construction or renovation is significantly less expensive and less disruptive than after the facility is operational. K-12 educational institutions can benefit from an ITS infrastructure design that is planned in advance to support growth and changes that will be required to enhance the educational delivery system. This standard specifies minimum requirements and guidelines for the design of ITS infrastructure for K-12 educational institutions.

There are currently no other standards like this one. It deals with safety in an educational environment; most importantly; the safety of children. Therefore, the standard goes beyond normal standards to assure safety including the use of specialized types of cabling.

The ANSI/BICSI-001-2009 standard is intended to be used by K-12 facility owners, operators, architects, engineers, telecommunications and information technology (IT) consultants, project managers, and telecommunications/IT technology installers. It is not intended to be the sole source of information for the design or installation of ITS for K-12 institutions. "

Ordering and pricing info:

I'm not sure what BICSI-002 is, must be another newly released standard that has not hit the press ?
