The purpose of this assessment was to investigate the achievement patterns of black and white students in the Clark County School District since the implementation of the present desegregation plan. For this study, black students who are currently enrolled in the grade levels under study were used for comparison purposes. In addition, a sample of approximately eight percent of the white students was also utilized in order to investigate the effects of desegregation on the white population. Under the current design, sixth grade centers were established in the previously all black schools. Most sixth grade students in the Metropolitan area attended these centers. The remaining elementary schools in the Metropolitan area were converted to K-Five Centers and black students from the previously all black schools were bussed into these schools in order to achieve full integration. This report includes a statement of the problem specific to Clark County, a review of the literature regarding the general effects of desegregation throughout the nation, the procedures used in this study, limitations of the study, findings within the District, and conclusions regarding achievement patterns in the Clark County School District.
