Perceptions of Successful Strategies and Passage of School Bond Issues.
Crader, Allan B.; Holloway, Kenneth; Stauffacher, Alan
This study examined strategies that could assist public school administrators and school boards with the passage of bond issues. It specifically looked at such issues as the time of year that an issue was presented to voters, the nexus between community relations and successful passage, and leadership structure of bond campaigns. A survey instrument was developed and sent to 100 school districts in Missouri that had sought a bond issue. The results revealed little correlation between the researched aspects and success; while most superintendents readily indicate that they have a successful technique, the process may in fact involve only luck. The study calls for additional research. (EV)
