Evaluating the Elementary School.
Otto Elementary School, NC.
A self-study of the Otto Elementary School in Otto, North Carolina, began in 1960 and was completed in 1963. The study was implemented to provide faculty and staff with an opportunity to evaluate school practices, identify areas needing improvement, and project future plans for improvement. One general goal, providing quality education for all pupils, was the overriding concept in discussions of curriculum change, facility improvement, and instructional materials. It was noted that continuous evaluation and home, school, and community cooperation were imperative to achieve this general goal. Major sections of the document are devoted to (1) surveys of the school and community, (2) purposes of the program, (3) the instructional program and curriculum, (4) the program of studies, (5) listing of personnel, (6) facilities and materials related to the instructional program, (7) community-school interaction, and (8) coordination of school, community, and other resources. It is concluded that the study was successful in that instruction was improved; community and school were more aware of school needs; better use was made of facilities; and workshops and extension courses helped professional growth of teachers.
