The Effects of an Inservice Program on School Administrators' Knowledge Concerning the Fourth Amendment's Applicability to Student Searches and Seizures.
Gonzalez, Orlando B.
Findings of a study that examined the effect of a 13-week inservice program on administrators' awareness of laws governing student searches and seizures are presented in this practicum report. Four school-site administrators participated in the project once a week. Program activities included case analyses, role-playing exercises, and critical-thinking worksheets. Pre- and post-test surveys indicate that participants made significant gains in their knowledge and understanding of laws that regulate student search and seizure. Implications are that school districts must communicate legal information to school-site administrators and develop a district curriculum. Appendices contain a manual that outlines the relevant law regarding student search and seizure, critical-thinking worksheets, and survey findings. (Contains 37 references.) (LMI)
