A DESCRIPTIVE AND COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE PATTERNS OPERATIVE IN SIX SCHOOL HEALTH PROGRAMS. FINAL REPORT.
MAYSHARK, CYRUS
FOUR HYPOTHESES RELATED TO SCHOOL HEALTH PROGRAMS IN SIX SELECTED COMMUNITIES--DENVER (COLORADO), DUVAL COUNTY (FLORIDA), EVANSTON (ILLINOIS), PORTLAND (OREGON), PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY (MARYLAND), AND TACOMA (WASHINGTON)--WERE TESTED THROUGH ANALYSIS OF INTERVIEW AND QUESTIONNAIRE RESPONSE DATA. OF 321 QUESTIONNAIRES MAILED TO A SELECTED SAMPLE OF HEALTH PROGRAM PERSONNEL, 217 (67.7 PERCENT) WERE RETURNED USABLE FOR ANALYSIS, WITH APPROXIMATELY 35 FROM EACH COMMUNITY. IN THE SIX COMMUNITIES, 155 INTERVIEWS WERE CONDUCTED WITH SELECTED SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY PERSONNEL. STATISTICAL ANALYSIS GENERALLY CONFIRMED THAT (1) QUALITY OF THE SCHOOL HEALTH PROGRAM IS RELATED TO ADMINISTRATIVE ORGANIZATION AND RELATIONSHIPS, (2) QUALITY OF THE SCHOOL HEALTH PROGRAM IS RELATED TO SOURCE AND EXTENT OF FISCAL SUPPORT, (3) MAINTENANCE OF AND/OR IMPROVEMENT IN STUDENT HEALTH IS RELATED TO ADMINISTRATIVE ORGANIZATION AND RELATIONSHIPS, AND (4) EFFECTIVE INTEGRATION OF THE THREE PHASES OF THE SCHOOL HEALTH PROGRAM (INSTRUCTION, SERVICES, AND ENVIRONMENT) IS RELATED TO ADMINISTRATIVE ORGANIZATION AND RELATIONSHIPS. DESCRIPTIONS OF THE VARIOUS SCHOOL HEALTH PROGRAMS FOCUS ON SPECIAL ACHIEVEMENTS AND IDENTIFY MAJOR PROBLEMS IN SCHOOL HEALTH PROGRAMMING. APPENDICES INCLUDE THE SELF-ADMINISTERED QUESTIONNAIRE, SUPPORTING DATA, ORGANIZATIONAL CHARTS OF THE SIX SCHOOL SYSTEMS, AND PERCEPTIVE DIFFERENCES OF TEACHERS, STAFF PERSONNEL, AND LINE ADMINISTRATORS.
