Desegregation Monitoring and Advisory Committee. Report No. 2.
Foote, Edward T.
This second report of the Desegregation Monitoring and Advisory Committee examines the problems and procedures of a court-approved desegregation plan for the St. Louis, Missouri public schools. Regular and nonregular student assignments and enrollments are discussed with respect to the racial composition of the student population and the type of school or program. The report describes objectives of the desegregation plan, student assignment procedures, guidelines for safety, essential elements in a school contingency plan to handle emergencies, and procedures for identifying discipline problems. Appendices include current and projected enrollment data for black, white and total student populations in integrated and non-integrated schools in 1980 and 1981, as well as enrollment information for magnet schools and enrichment programs according to grade level. Information on the number of black and white certified and non-certified teachers for each participating school district and the number of open teaching positions according to grade category and subject area are also given in tabular form. Additional charts analyze the national origin of minority group children, the number of naturally integrated schools, changes in cluster configuration, and the three tier schedule of school hours.
