Secondary schools; application for school supervisory approval of construction measures

The implementation of new buildings, conversions and extensions in grammar schools, secondary modern schools, technical secondary schools, technical academies and vocational secondary schools requires approval by the school supervisory authorities. The governments are responsible for issuing such permits.


With the approval of the school supervisory authority, it is determined that the building programme corresponds to the school's needs and covers the necessary space requirements, taking into account the existing building stock.

The school supervisory authority's approval is to be granted if the necessary space requirements for the numbers of pupils and classes to be expected in the long term - taking into account the existing situation - are covered and the smooth running of the school is guaranteed. In the case of conversions and extensions, permission can already be granted if the realisation of the planned building measures will at least improve inadequate school conditions. The application to be submitted by the funding agency with the participation of the school must be accompanied in particular by documents on the actual catchment area, insofar as a school district has not been legally established for the school, the number of pupils to be expected in the long term, the space requirements of the school on the basis of §§ 3 and 4 of the School Construction Ordinance (SchulbauV) with information on the function and size of the planned rooms and areas, the existing stock and its future use. The governments are responsible for granting school supervisory approval.

In the case of private alternative schools, the school supervisory approval also includes the approval of the concrete building planning from the point of view of the school's function, insofar as funding is to be applied for in accordance with the Bavarian School Financing Act (BaySchFG) (§ 5 sentence 3 of the School Construction Ordinance).
