An Analysis to Determine Significant Administrative Procedures Used in the Establishment and Operation of Selected Resident Outdoor Laboratory School Programs.
Turner, Walton George
A questionnaire was sent to superintendents of selected school districts which operated resident outdoor laboratory school programs. Areas covered by the questionnaire included finance, facilities, public relations, transportation, insurance, staffing, food service, and board policies. Responses indicated that few differences existed in program operations according to school district size; that most programs surveyed had been in operation over 11 years; that student fees were charged for most programs; and that most laboratory sites were rented or leased. Staffing, facilities, and financing were the most prevalent problem areas. Conclusions were that many more trained teachers, laboratory sites, and sources of financial support must be made available for continuing and expanding resident outdoor programs. In addition, total educational cost per student apparently had no relation to whether a school district had a resident outdoor education program. (JH)
