School Services Needs Assessment of the Basic Service Area of Arkansas State University.
Enger, John M.; Sales, M. Vance
Primary objectives of this study were: (1) to assess the perceived needs for outside services at 121 school districts in the Arkansas State University (ASU) service area; and (2) to determine the preferred types of outside services. Each school district was categorized by four factors: accreditation status, student enrollment, geographic region, and distance from the ASU campus. Twenty types of services were delineated, and ranked in order of perceived need: evaluation of instruction; needs assessment and evaluation procedures; design and evaluation of federal programs, including grant writing; school law; special education diagnosis and implementation; attitude adjustment techniques; student career awareness; school-community public relations techniques; curriculum design; classroom management; orientation for new school board members; facilities planning; assessment and improvement of school rating; personnel management; business management; achievement testing; extracurricular activities implementation; instructional materials; course scheduling; and transportation. Of the types of services desired, workshop activities and consultants were preferred over formal courses. None of the four factors used to characterize the school districts was determined to influence the needs for outside services or the types of services desired. (The questionnaire is appended.) (MH)
