Evaluation of Alternative Attendance Patterns to Improve Racial Balance. Research Memorandum No. 7.
Harker, R. A.; And Others
Part of a series of reports dealing with racial distribution in San Francisco schools, this memorandum presents 12 specific attendance alternatives and compares them according to effectiveness and cost. The evaluation of the alternatives is preceded by a summarization of the overall study. Then each of the 12 attendance patterns is defined and discussed. Some of the factors considered include the degree of racial balance or imbalance, school district boundaries, disadvantaged areas, feeder attendance rules, school reorganization, and busing. Summary sheets highlight the major features of each alternative. Maps showing assignment area boundaries are provided. Time-phased implementation of one pattern is investigated for feasibility. The implications of several alternatives for changes in transportation and facilities are examined. In addition, the effectiveness of alternative attendance patterns is compared with the corresponding costs of transportation and facility modifications. (EB)
