Brainstorm; A Sub-Project Assessing Educational Needs as Perceived by School Staff: PROJECT DESIGN. Interagency Planning for Urban Educational Needs, Number 1.
Fresno City Unified School District, CA.
This report is one in a series of needs assessment publications that comprise the initial phase for PROJECT DESIGN, an ESEA Title III project administered by the Fresno City Unified School District. Subprogram Brainstorm was conceived to provide an opportunity for all staff members of the Fresno City Schools to contribute directly to various phases of the project. The Brainstorm program was geared to identify areas in which current educational programs and services fail to meet perceived standards of quality or optimum education. A training session was held for 43 teachers recognized as effective group discussion leaders. Each then conducted a minimum of three Brainstorm sessions. A total of 166 sessions were organized through the district to reduce traveling to a minimum. Reports were forwarded immediately after each session. Data were classified under six major groups of needs: (1) personnel, (2) students--general, (3) students--specific groups, (4) management, (5) plant, and (6) relationships. A frequency distribution was arranged. No attempt was made to establish priorities among the stated needs. (DE)
