Guidelines for Establishing or Reorganizing a Very Small, Individualized Secondary School. A Summary of a Doctoral Dissertation by Rowland R. King. Research Reports on Educational Administration, Volume III, No. 6, 1973.
Deever, Merwin; Segrave, Edward
Guidelines to assist administrators in establishing a small secondary school or revising an existing one were presented in this report. The study population was chosen from the Western Regional area and a pilot study was conducted with Arizona State University graduate students. Fifty-two guidelines were established in the areas of curriculum and scheduling; instructor performance and methods; organization and involvement of community, State Department of Education, and elementary school personnel in the routine operation of the secondary school; employment of professional and lay staff; acquisition of school plant facilities and equipment; inservice training; and secondary school finance. Six major recommendations were presented after data analysis. It was noted that by following the guidelines, small isolated communities will be better able to enroll and successfully educate secondary students in their own individualized schools. (PS)
