Summer School Cost Study. A Report of the Summer School Committee.
Dependents Schools (DOD), Washington, DC.
This study is primarily a compilation of cost and budget data gathered through a summer school questionnaire that was sent to 25 United States school systems with a total enrollment of over 100,000 students. Eighteen questionnaires were returned, though one was not used since the school system does not operate a summer school. Therefore, the data analysis is based on responses from 17 of the 25 school systems contacted. The questionnaire was designed to provide guidance to the Summer School Committee in preparing uniform summer school policy guidelines for the Department of Defense Overseas Schools. In order to develop summer school policy guidelines comparable to stateside schools, information was obtained regarding who pays the costs of providing summer school, the number of students attending summer school, the type and description of summer school courses offered, who coordinates the program and prepares required summer school reports, and other information regarding the cost and operation of summer school programs. In addition to a variety of data tables that summarize responses to the different questionnaire items, the report also contains a sample of the questionnaire form. (Author/JG)
