A STUDY OF ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS IN SELECTED SCHOOL DISTRICTS OF IOWA, MISSOURI, AND SOUTH DAKOTA.
MANATT, RICHARD P.; NETUSIL, ANTON J.
A STUDY WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE AND ANALYZE THE COSTS OF CENTRAL ADMINISTRATION OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN SOUTH DAKOTA, IOWA, AND MISSOURI FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR 1965-66. THIRTY SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN EACH OF THE 3 STATES (10 LARGEST, 10 MEDIAN, 10 SMALLEST) WERE INCLUDED AS THE SAMPLE POPULATION. THE PER PUPIL COSTS FOUND IN THIS STUDY SUPPORT THE ORIGINAL ASSUMPTION THAT SMALL SCHOOL DISTRICTS HAVE GREATLY INCREASED PER CAPITA EXPENSE FOR CENTRAL ADMINISTRATION. FROM THE FINDINGS OF THIS STUDY, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT IN EACH OF THE 3 STATES MORE AUTHORITY BE GIVEN BY LAW TO THE STATE EDUCATION AGENCY FOR PLANNING AND DIRECTING REORGANIZATION OF ALL SCHOOL DISTRICTS. AFTER REORGANIZATION, BASIC ADMINISTRATIVE SCHOOL DISTRICTS SHOULD HAVE A MINIMUM OF 3,000 TO 5,000 PUPILS. A FINAL RECOMMENDATION WAS THAT ALL INVOLVED WITH PUBLIC SCHOOLS SHOULD MAKE A MORE THOROUGH COST-ANALYSIS OF EDUCATIONAL SERVICES THROUGH THE USE OF PER PUPIL COST COMPARISONS. (ES)
