The Declining Enrollment Project. An Anthology of New Jersey State Department of Education Research on Declining Enrollments.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Operations, Research, and Evaluation.
This anthology of articles investigates and analyzes problems related to declining enrollment with emphasis on the state of New Jersey. It is intended to provide assistance to local New Jersey school districts in managing and preparing for enrollment decline. The first chapter provides an overview of declining enrollments in New Jersey and touches on the effects of declining enrollment on finance, personnel, facilities, and management. The second chapter explores patterns of enrollment fluctuation in New Jersey school districts from 1966-67 to 1976-77, concluding that enrollment decline has hit some areas of the state and some types of districts more severely than others. The third chapter outlines the policy options open to the states in responding to decline and reviews the changes in state-aid formulas that 19 states have made as a result of decline. In chapter 4 some ways of dealing with surplus facilities produced by declining enrollment are briefly reviewed. (Author/JM)
