Teacher Absenteeism: Experience and Practices of School Systems. ERS Report.
Educational Research Service, Arlington, VA.
The first of a two-part report, this document presents the findings of a national survey on staff absenteeism for the school year 1978-79. Of the 1,423 public school systems sampled, 470 (33 percent) returned usable replies to the survey on teacher absenteeism. Two sets of absence data (absence rates and average number of days absent per support staff) are presented by pupil enrollment and also by eight other classifications: grade span, geographic region, Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA) category, type of community served, average salary of teachers, method of absense reporting, negotiating status of school system, and personal leave provisions. In additon to the summary tables, each volume contains examples of local school system analyses of employee attendance records or reports and descriptions of recent local studies on absenteeism or leave usage. School system policies/procedures or provisions in negotiated contracts relating to staff absenteeism are also provided. (Author/MLF)
