School Staffing; An Analysis of Selecting Factors: PROJECT DESIGN. Interagency Planning for Urban Educational Needs, Number 4.
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. The purpose of this study was to determine whether significant teacher staffing differences exist among schools of the district. The data used in this study were compiled from a questionnaire completed by school principals. Along with socio-cultural information requested for other analyses, the questionnaire asked for the following information about teachers on each faculty: (1) Number of years taught in district, (2) number of years taught in current grade-subject assignment, (3) number of years of total teaching experience, and (4) number of years taught in current school. No attempt was made to investigate less objective factors. Inspection revealed wide ranges for each factor in the 51 elementary schools, narrower ranges for each in the junior high group, and still narrower ranges for the senior high group. An analysis of data is included in the report and a sample questionnaire is appended. (DE)
