THE CALIFORNIA COMMITTEE OF TEN REPORT.
CARITHERS, POLLY
THE COUNTY SCHOOL ORGANIZATION IN CALIFORNIA HAS PERMITTED SOME PIONEERING INTERDISTRICT PROGRAMS TO DEVELOP, AND HAS DEMONSTRATED THE EFFICIENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF THE APPROACH. IN SOME AREAS OF THE STATE WHERE COUNTY BOUNDARIES HAVE IMPOSED LIMITATIONS, OPERATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR PROVIDING SPECIAL SERVICES HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED ON A MULTICOUNTY BASIS. MOST OF THESE PROGRAMS ARE HIGHLY EFFECTIVE, AND YET THEY ARE LARGELY WITHOUT PATTERN AND ARE HELD TOGETHER BY LITTLE MORE THAN MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING, WILLINGNESS, AND CONVENIENCE. MOST OF THESE INTERMEDIATE UNITS ARE CONTROLLED BY AN ELECTED COUNTY SUPERINTENDENT, WHICH IS AN ANTIQUATED SYSTEM, AND SHOULD BE CHANGED TO AN APPOINTED POSITION WITH AN ELECTED BOARD. THE ADDITIONAL SERVICES WHICH THESE UNITS ARE PROVIDING SCHOOL DISTRICTS IS PROVING INVALUABLE. THEREFORE, THIS UNIT SHOULD HAVE FULL AUTHORITY FOR ITS OWN BUDGET AND POSSESS FISCAL INDEPENDENCE SIMILAR TO A DISTRICT GOVERNING BOARD. THIS ARTICLE APPEARS IN THE "JOURNAL ON STATE SCHOOL SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT," VOL. 1, NO. 2, SUMMER 1967, PP. 130-140. (ES)
