Eisenberger, Katherine E.; Keough, William F.
This booklet is intended to serve as a guide for school superintendents, school board members, and school administrators in dealing with the problems of an enrollment decline. In their discussion, the authors outline some background, procedures, and considerations that may help administrators ease community and staff reaction to an enrollment decline. Separate chapters focus on the topics of enrollment prediction, school-community relations, personnel matters, and facilities utilization. Also included is a sample four-year time line of steps that administrators can take to prepare for an eventual school closing. (Author/JG)
