Guidelines for School District Organization. A Project Report.
Great Plains School District Organization Project, Lincoln, NE.; Nebraska State Dept. of Education, Lincoln.
The Great Plains School District Organization Project, approved by the State Boards of Education in Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, and South Dakota and financed by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, had two objectives: (1) To strengthen the State Departments of Education, and (2) to seek ways and means of strengthening the Departments by improving school district organization. This report presents the findings and recommendations resulting from the 2-year study. The information for the report came from position papers prepared for the Project staff, from a review of the literature concerning school district organization, and from comments and suggestions received from legislative, lay, and professional personnel in attendance at two four-State conferences on school district organization. Fourteen organizational guidelines resulted from the study. (HW)
