Secondary Schools Released Time Evaluation: 1971-72.
During the 1971-72 school year, Minneapolis secondary students were released from their classes every Tuesday at 2:00 to allow secondary staff members to participate in staff development activities. The purpose of the released time program was to give secondary personnel an opportunity to work on common concerns and objectives. Based on questionnaire returns from more than 80% of the teachers, more time was spent on department meetings than on any other activity. Other activities on which many teachers spent released time were attending quadrant consultant meetings, attending faculty meetings to discuss school policies, developing new courses and materials, and identifying department objectives. Almost 90% of the responding personnel would like to see the Secondary Released Time Program continued. (Author/CK)
