                           1. No elevator.
                           2. Secondary corridors are too narrow (3') and do not meet code for educational use.
                           3. All stairs are open from floor-to-floor, therefore no protected egress path.
                           4. Basement art classroom, book room, and music space with no windows.
                           5. Quantity and distribution of toilet facilities does not meet code.
Code concerns              6. Open cubbies in corridor create a flammability risk.
