 Program Overview
 Overall feel of office/counseling spaces:
  Warm, inviting, welcoming spaces that are organized and uncluttered
  Adequate space for seating
  Built-in storage using counters or furniture
  Lots of lighting (natural and artificial)
  Plants and art displays
  Smells clean
  If not wireless, there should be at least two computer hookups in each office in
    order to create a flexible, comfortable, and welcoming atmosphere

 Security and safety:
  All visitors (non-employees) will enter the office via the only unlocked entrance to
    gain a sticker/pass and sign-in
  All other doors will be locked with key fobs/cards for employee access
  Surveillance cameras should be on the outside/inside of the school with signs
    posted on all doors indicating that a security system is in place
