THE IMPLICATIONS OF CHANGE FOR SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION.
BEATTIE, ALFRED W.
A MAJOR TASK OF THE COUNTY SUPERINTENDENT AND HIS STAFF IS THAT OF PLANNING NECESSARY FACILITIES AND PROVIDING SPECIALIZED PERSONNEL. HIS MAJOR RESPONSIBILITY IS THAT OF MAINTAINING UNIFORMITY IN COURSE CONTENT AND LEVEL OF ACHIEVEMENT IN SCHOOLS IN VARIOUS COUNTIES AND ACROSS STATE LINES. USE OF TELEVISED EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS HAS BECOME ALL BUT IMPOSSIBLE DUE TO SCHEDULING DIFFICULTIES AMONG SCHOOLS. AN IMMEDIATE NEED EXISTS FOR COORDINATED SCHEDULING AT THE DISTRICT LEVEL TO ALLOW CAPABLE STUDENTS AN OPPORTUNITY TO VIEW EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, AND ATTEND COLLEGES OR VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS PART TIME. IF THIS OBJECTIVE IS TO BE REALIZED, THE COUNTY SUPERINTENDENT MUST ASSURE THAT ALL HIGH SCHOOLS CONCERNED HAVE THE SAME NUMBER OF PERIODS IN MORNING AND AFTERNOON, AND SCHOOL DAYS OF REASONABLY EQUAL LENGTH. OTHER SERVICES THE OFFICE OF THE SUPERINTENDENT IS UNIQUELY QUALIFIED TO ADMINISTER INCLUDE THE FILM LIBRARY (AS ENABLED BY THE NATIONAL DEFENSE EDUCATION ACT OF 1958), SPECIAL EDUCATION, AND TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOLS. THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED TO THE ANNUAL NATIONAL CONFERENCE OF COUNTY AND RURAL AREA SUPERINTENDENTS (15TH, LOUISVILLE, OCTOBER 9-12,1960). (DA)
