Three Surveys of Staff and Parent Opinions about the LAUSD Instructional Program, Spring 1983. Publication No. 440.
Stevens, Floraline I.; And Others
To aid in instructional planning, 4,730 certificated and 3,381 classified staff members, and 20,506 parents from schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) were surveyed for their opinions on the district's performance in instruction. Survey results emphasized the importance of the quality of instruction. Certificated and classified staff were satisfied with their roles and the instructional program at their own schools, but neutral about the overall quality of the district's program. LAUSD parents were more satisfied than the staff, and far more satisfied than parents in a national survey, with the quality of their schools. They were also more satisfied than the staff about the district's current emphasis on basic skills. Attention should be paid to parent and certificated staff comments and recommendations for instructional improvement. The appendix includes tables of responses for each survey form, plus copies of the certificated staff, classified staff, and parents survey forms. A parent survey form in Spanish is also included.
