Clinton, Thomas A.; Tubb, Gary W.
In August 1975, the Louisiana legislature passed a bill, Act 812, which required each school board "to provide for and conduct an annual two day in-service teacher educational program for teachers during the minimum session of attendance required. . . ." The two day in-service activity was to be conducted within the required 180 days of attendance. Each school board was required to meet guidelines developed by the State Department of Education and to check the attendance of teachers. Each teacher who attended the activity for the required two days received a merit raise of $500.00. The action resulted in the use of (1) consultants, (2) State Department of Education personnel, and (3) higher education personnel by public schools. The guidelines developed by the State Department of Education for the planning and conduct of the in-service programs stressed assessment. Assessment instruments were utilized three-fold in compliance with Act 812. (Appended are the text of Act 812, guidelines for the implementation of House Bill No. 1100, needs assessment for parish in-service programs, assessment for the Desoto Parish in-service program, and the schedule for the Desoto Parish in-service program.)
