Educational Program Status Report. Ganado Public Schools.
Tonigan, Richard F.
Prepared as background information for a future long-range comprehensive plan, this status study was done to determine the scope and nature of the current educational program and facilities in the four schools operated by the Ganado Public School District. To accomplish the project, the staff of consultants followed a 5-part procedure: (1) examined faculty and administrative prepared North Central Association documents (1978); (2) examined North Central Association review team's re-evaluation report (1978); (3) observed district school plants; (4) interviewed and questioned selected school personnel; and (5) researched documents from interviewed personnel. Observers concentrated on gaining overall impressions of the settings in which teaching and learning take place in the four schools. The combination of high rates of personnel turnover, inadequate facilities, and widely scattered facilities was determined to be contributing significantly to communication difficulties, thereby impacting the satisfactory operation of the instructional program. In order to improve the inadequate programs and facilities, it was concluded that the long-range master plan be completed and implemented as soon as it was financially feasible. (JD)
