Analysis and Follow-Up of 1969-70 Evaluation Report.
New Mexico State Dept. of Education, Santa Fe. Div. of Research and Development.
Thirty-one school districts and Albuquerque High School and its feeder schools were evaluated in 1969-70 on 24 areas and 23 aspects of these areas, making possible a total of 552 recommendations for improvement. Districts surveyed ranged from a maximum of 178 recommendations to a minimum of 69. Program enrichment was found to be the area of greatest need. Recommendations were also made for greater leadership in administration, subject area committees and department chairmen, updated texts and materials, additional staffing, and redistricting. As a followup a team visited each school in October 1970. Reaction to the evaluation and followup varied. Most team members reported cordiality and cooperation from administrators. In most districts, those recommendations that could be implemented without additional expenditures had already been made. A few evaluators reported encountering opposition or hostility to some recommendations, either directly, through criticism of evaluation procedures or personnel, or indirectly, through establishing committees to study the report and make recommendations. Statistical data related to the evaluation is attached. (KM)
