Arranging Student Desks

Care should be taken when arranging student desks. This is important because the desks should be arranged to not only adhere to fire and safety codes, but also to create the desired classroom environment.

The arrangement of the desks can help to either promote interaction among students or encourage solitary work. The type of arrangement which is ideal for a particular classroom will depend on the subject matter being taught, as well as the teacher's style of teaching. It is important for the arrangement of student desks to adhere to fire and safety guidelines.

These exact guidelines may vary depending on the location of the school. However, in general providing ample aisle ways and clear access to exits will help to ensure compliance with building and safety codes.
