District Level Instructional Media Programs in Wisconsin Public Schools, 1982. A Status Report. Bulletin No. 2416.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Div. of Library Services.
This report summarizes data from a May 1981 survey of Wisconsin's 433 school districts conducted by the Bureau of Instructional Media Programs of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. A single narrative and 14 composite tables present information from three separate data analyses, which included computation of statewide averages for the total responses, grouping of responses by district size, and comparison of results for districts with full-time media directors and those in which directors had building-level responsibilities. To maintain confidentiality regarding Milwaukee's information, statistics for districts with enrollments greater than 50,000 were omitted. Findings are organized according to 12 basic topics addressed by the study: (1) responsibilities of the district media director; (2) district level media program staff; (3) policies (planning and selection); (4) services; (5) resource sharing; (6) union catalogs; (7) membership in professional associations; (8) audiovisual equipment; (9) facilities; (10) budget maintenance; (11) staff changes; and (12) district media director profile.
