District-Wide Comprehensive Needs Assessment Study: Summary of System Totals, Part I, 1980-81. Evaluation Report.
Saginaw Public Schools, MI. Dept. of Evaluation Services.
A report which determines actual levels of need in the Saginaw Public Schools as indicated by respondent groups of teachers, administrators, parents and students. The seventeen function areas assessed in the study are explained. The combined responses of all groups are presented followed by major findings from each separate respondent group. The district-wide total response ranked these highest need areas in order: personnel, staff development, auxiliary services and support staff, communications/public relations, personal development of the student, and elementary educational programs. Three basic trends emerged from this study. The first was concern of respondents with ways to bring more accountability and efficiency to the operation of the schools. The need for improved communications about the schools was a second concern. Finally, people were most concerned with factors connected to the type of contact they have with the schools. The report may serve as a guide for determining the priority of needs for entire school communities or segments thereof. (DWH)
