This compendium is an appendix to a 50-state study of current legal standards for public elementary and secondary education (See EA 008 318). It compiles and digests the statutory and regulatory standards concerning education for each of the fifty states, Puerto Rico, and three trust territories. Also included is a citation to each standard and a tabular description of the agency responsible for implementing the standard. The standards of each state or territory have been organized on a single microfiche. To improve accessibility, all of the provisions compiled have been categorized within each state by 37 topic areas. A brief "Users Guide," which describes the organization and use of the microfiche compendium, is found on initial frame of the first microfiche. Immediately following this guide, a "Matrix Coordinator" provides an index to each jurisdiction's standards. This matrix locates the beginning frame for each of the 37 topic areas, by jurisdiction. Moreover, the first frame of each individual jurisdiction's microfiche also provides an additional index to the 37 topic areas of that jurisdiction. Specifically, the 37 topic areas utilized are: Accountability, Accreditation, Admission Requirements, Adult Education, Attendance Requirements, Categorical Progress, Compensatory Education, Course or Credit Load, Curriculum, District Organization, Equal Education Opportunity, Evaluation, Experimental Programs, Extra Curricular Activities, Financial Records and Accounting Procedures, Grade Organization, Graduation Requirements, Guidance and Counseling Services, In-Service Training Programs, Libraries, Maintenance and Use of Pupil Records, Objectives of School Systems, Personnel Policies and Employment Practices, Promotion Requirements, Pupil-Teacher Ratios and Other Staffing Requirements, Pupil Transportation, Revenue, Safety and Health Requirements, School Calendar, School Construction and Equipment Standards, School Plant Requirements, School Size, Special Education, Staff Salary Schedules, Teacher Certification, Textbooks and Other Instructional Materials, Vocational Education.
