IMPROVING INSTRUCTION--BUDGETING YOUR AUDIO-VISUAL PROGRAM.
RUGG, K.C.
AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO LOCATE AND DESCRIBE SUCCESSFUL AUDIOVISUAL PROGRAMS IN THE UNITED STATES THAT WERE IMPROVING INSTRUCTION IN THEIR RESPECTIVE SCHOOL SYSTEMS. AFTER A PRELIMINARY SURVEY, THE INVESTIGATOR SELECTED 28 SCHOOL SYSTEMS FOR INDIVIDUAL CASE STUDY. SELECTION WAS BASED ON GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION, SIZE OF SCHOOL SYSTEM, WILLINGNESS TO BE INCLUDED ON AN ANONYMOUS BASIS, TYPE OF SCHOOL SYSTEM (CITY, COUNTY, OR SUBURBAN), PER PUPIL EXPENDITURE FOR THE AUDIOVISUAL PROGRAM EXCLUDING SALARIES, AND COMPLETENESS OF NECESSARY INFORMATION. EACH AUDIOVISUAL DIRECTOR OF THE 28 SCHOOL SYSTEMS WAS ASKED TO PROVIDE FIVE KINDS OF INFORMATION--(1) SCOPE OF THE PROGRAM AND SERVICES OFFERED, (2) RELATIONSHIP OF THE DIRECTOR TO OTHER SCHOOL SYSTEM PERSONNEL, (3) UNIQUENESS OF THE PROGRAM BASED ON THE LOCAL SITUATION, (4) PERSONNEL NECESSARY TO CARRY THE PROGRAM FORWARD, AND (5) THE BUDGET (DELINEATED SO AS TO BE MEANINGFUL) NECESSARY FOR THE PROGRAM. DISTINCTIVE FEATURES OF MANY OF THE 28 PROGRAMS WERE EMPHASIZED IN THE INDIVIDUAL CASE STUDY DESCRIPTIONS IN THIS REPORT. THE REPORT DID NOT ATTEMPT TO PROVIDE FORMULAS OR DICTATE WHAT SHOULD BE SPENT ON NEW AUDIOVISUAL PROGRAMS. IT MERELY DESCRIBED WHAT EDUCATORS WERE DOING IN THE FIELD OF AUDIOVISUAL MEDIA, TO PROVIDE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS WITH USEFUL INFORMATION FOR AUDIOVISUAL PROGRAM PLANNING AND SUPERVISING. (JH)
