Section 6 Schools in Six States: Eleven Case Studies of Transfer Issues. A RAND Note.
Purnell, Susanna W.; And Others
The case studies in this report analyze the issues surrounding possible transfer of 11 Section 6 school systems (federally run schools on military bases) to state and local responsibility. Each case study addresses the extent to which a site is ready for transfer and what type of transfer option might be appropriate to that particular site. An analytic framework that identifies factors affecting readiness for transfer and considerations affecting option suitability was applied to the specific information collected on each site from federal, state, local, and military base interviews. Suggestions are made as to how some of the impediments could be removed or ameliorated to facilitate a specific transfer option. The 11 case studies are presented alphabetically by state. Each of the state sections begins with a brief summary of the education program and state financing programs. These are followed by a discussion of specific transfer issues influenced by the state's policies and regulations. Case studies of the school systems begin with general background about the military base and surrounding community, followed by a discussion of transfer issues including the school district financial resources, condition of facilities, and base employee status after a transfer.
