A School-by-School Reporting System for the District of Columbia Public Schools: An Outline for Action.
Ferrara, Lynette; Paller, Alan
This report is concerned with improving the resource allocation system of public schools in Washington, D.C. It describes the information necessary for creating an alternative resource plan and the administrative reporting procedures necessary for maintaining such a plan. The strengths and weaknesses of existing data collection and reporting procedures are discussed. A school based reporting system which integrates existing data collection systems and provides a flexible, responsive reporting capability is described. It is argued that a school-by-school reporting system will provide the information required to assess alternative solutions to the problem of equalization of resource allocations among school building sites. An action plan to facilitate the development of a school-by-school reporting sysem tailored to the information needs of the Washington, D.C. school system is suggested. (Author/EB)
