An Evaluation of the Flint Hills Educational Research and Development Association. Final Report.
Kansas State Teachers Coll., Emporia.
An evaluation of this association of 13 school districts, founded in 1965 to provide a cooperative effort in sharing some federal programs sponsored under the new Elementary and Secondary Education Act, was conducted to determine whether the association was achieving its primary objective of providing a more comprehensive education for the children of its member districts than could have been done by the districts individually. Evaluation was accomplished by studying results of interviews with superintendents; questionnaires sent to principals, teachers, parents, several school board members, and cooperating college faculty; and reports from projects proposed by the association. Conclusions are that the association has been successful in several areas, including sponsoring communications, influencing attitudes, and finding revenue sources for projects. The six association projects have had varying degrees of success and their total impact is yet to be assessed. (An appendix contains interview and questionnaire forms and an abstract of the association's history and activities.) (RT)
