Pilot Study of School District Reorganization, State of New Jersey.
Engelhardt, Engelhardt and Leggett, Inc., Purdy Station, NY.
The study is part of a state evaluation of schools and is directed primarily to a review of the effectiveness of the existing organization among local school districts in the State of New Jersey. Five major topics are presented in this study: (1) school district reorganization--aims, methods, and problems; (2) growth of enrollments; (3) characteristics of New Jersey school districts; (4) characteristics of superior school districts; and (5) characteristics of individual high schools. In considering criteria for reorganization, the following factors are isolated as being characteristics that are found in good school districts: pupils per teacher; teaching staff with master's degrees; program offerings in the high school; selected practices; size and wealth; and cost per pupil. Nine criteria are suggested for reorganization. It is concluded that financial incentives are by far the most important facilitating factor. Numerous data tables are contained in the appendix. (SW)
