A Preliminary Report on San Diego Area Instructional Television Authority Development.
San Diego Area Instructional Television Authority, CA.
The San Diego Area Instructional Television Authority (SDA-ITVA) produces educational television programs that are related to the local instructional needs of 24 school districts and 10 private schools in San Diego County. The Farr-Quimby Act and assessments on the schools pay the costs of the television programs. A number of programs (28) produced outside the region have been found to be appropriate for local use. Various programs have been developed to integrate television into the general educational demands of the area, including the utilization of teachers on selection committees and adaptation of television to high school scheduling demands. Implementation of State-mandated educational programs, efforts to encourage creativity and use of local resources in ETV, programs for preschool (particularly, preschool disadvantaged), and programs aimed at instructional staff are all areas in which SDA ITVA has initiated action. The use of television in other areas relevant to education is being experimented with. Various graphs of the actual and projected use of television in San Diego County are included. A list of the general types of expenses experienced by SDA ITVA is appended. (RP)
