SEA Parent Opinion Survey-1974. Final Report.
Parent input to administrative decisions within Southeast Alternatives (SEA) takes several forms. First, administrators often seek individual or group opinions on issues. Secondly, parents sit on advisory councils and governing boards which set policy or make recommendations. Finally, a broad base of feedback is sought through systematic interviews or surveys of all parents. This document reports the results of the third all-parent survey effort. Every parent was mailed a questionnaire packet containing six sections--one to be answered by all-parents and one from each of the SEA component schools. Parents were directed to respond to the all-parent section and to those school sections at which their children attended. In addition to responding to questionnaire sections, parents were urged to supply further comments. All parent responses were anonymous. Questionnaires were computer analyzed, except for write-in comments which were collected and included in feedback information to particular schools. Approximately 45 percent of questionnaires mailed were returned. The response data was found to be reasonably representative of SEA parent opinion. (Author/BJG)
