Stephens, E. Robert; And Others
The appendix to the study illustrates the three instruments used for gathering data and the four sets of statistical tabulations serving as a basis for the study's recommendations. The instruments are (1) a questionnaire regarding selected characteristics of Iowa county school systems; (2) a questionnaire regarding alternative methods for the governance of multicounty regional educational service agencies; and (3) a questionnaire regarding problems, obstacles, and limitations faced by existing educational agencies in providing quality educational programs and in the allocation of educational functions. The sets of statistics deal with (1) selected characteristics of the county school systems and local school districts in regional educational service agencies; (2) Iowa State legislation authorizing the merger of county school systems; (3) obstacles, problems, or limitations faced by the three levels of school government in providing quality educational programs as perceived by superintendents of local school districts; and (4) the allocation of educational functions as perceived by selected local school district superintendents, county superintendents, and personnel of the State department of public instruction. Documents EA 001 332 through 001 336 report the findings of a single study funded under Title III of ESEA. (JK)
