State Legislation Affecting Inservice Staff Development in Public Education.
Geffert, Hannah N.; And Others
Summarized is legislation from states and outlying territories, in effect as of January, 1976, which constitutes the basic legal structure for the development and implementation of inservice staff development programs in public education. The major elements of the statutes affecting inservice staff development are noted to include collective bargaining, inservice categories (the type of inservice activity desired), and inservice subjects (which include agricultural instruction, delinquency and crime prevention, and special education). Statutes for each state appear in the same order, and with the same section numbers as in their respective state code books. In addition, a series of charts are provided which facilitates state by state comparisons of governance structures, subjects, purposes, and types of inservice training mandated by law. State employee negotiation statutes regarding collective bargaining have also been reported in chart form. Indexes for each state categorize statutes under the following main headings: attendance; calendar; grants; finance; inservice authority; inservice categories; inservice participants; inservice subjects; leaves of absence (sabbaticals); and state and local boards of education, supervisors, and administrators.
