Establishment of an Outdoor Education Program for Unified School District #345 with Maximum Use of Federal or Private Funds.
Colaw, Frank Edwin
Outdoor education programs in several states were visited to conduct interviews and to make observations concerning curriculum, financing, facilities, organization, and interagency cooperation. It was found that the form of programs and arrangements for facilities were determined by local needs and resources. In general, programs were limited to elementary schools, were financed through local tax monies, and facilities were rented or leased. A review of federal aid programs revealed available financial assistance from Titles I and III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. In addition, various federal agencies were found which provide land, funds, and services to school districts for outdoor education and recreation programs. At the conclusion of the study, Unified School District #345 established an outdoor education program on 160 acres with operational financing for 3 years without the expenditure of local or state funds.
