The measures must, at a minimum, assess performance in the following areas:
(a) Frugal production of high-quality projects.
(b) Efficient finance and administration.
(c) Optimal school and classroom size and utilization rate.
(e) Core facility space needs and cost-effective capacity improvements that consider demographic projections.
(f) Level of district local effort.
(2) The clearinghouse shall establish annual performance objectives and standards that can be used to evaluate district performance and productivity.
(3) The clearinghouse shall conduct ongoing evaluations of district educational facilities program performance and productivity, using the measures adopted under this section. If, using these measures, the clearinghouse finds that a district failed to perform satisfactorily, the clearinghouse must recommend to the district school board actions to be taken to improve the district's performance.
