District-Wide Comprehensive Needs Assessment Study: Summary of System Totals, Part II, 1980-81. Evaluation Report.
Saginaw Public Schools, MI. Dept. of Evaluation Services.
A major purpose of this needs assessment study was identification of areas of consensus of respondent groups concerning their attitudes toward educational issues. These issues may be of importance in setting policy, making decisions, or developing new programs in the future. The four respondent groups were administrators, teachers, parents, and students. A number of similarities existed among respondent groups' opinions. These include effects of student absenteeism on school achievement, support for a back-to-basics movement and strict disciplinary policy. The differences between groups' opinions included views on effects of voluntary integration on the quality of education, disposition of vacant school buildings, and responsibility for student behavior. The system-wide responses to the school community survey were presented on charts indicating percentage of responses. The report is intended for audiences including: Board of Education, superintendent, administrators, teachers, and the community. (DWH)
