Educational Survey of Elizabeth City North Carolina: Summary of Conclusions and Recommendations. Bulletin, 1921, No. 26
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
On July 20, 1920, the board of school trustees invited the Commissioner of Education to undertake a survey of the schools of Elizabeth City, with the understanding that the cost would not exceed $1,500, and that the cost of the survey would be underwritten by the Elizabeth City Chamber of Commerce. On July 24-25 Commissioner Claxton and two members of the commission made a study of the buildings and gathered data upon which the recommendations concerning the building program were based. This part of the report was submitted to the board July 30, 1920. The remainder of the field work was done during the month of November, and included an aggregate of about 70 days. On Friday evening, January 7, 1921, the director of the survey presented an outline of the report, and discusses the conclusions and recommendations with the board in Elizabeth City. As rapidly as the work could be completed, the full text of the report was furnished to the board in manuscript, the last chapters being mailed on July 7, 1921. Following this introduction is a discussion of a building program, organization and administration, school census and enrollment, the elementary schools, the high school, home economics, and manual-training. (Contains 19 tables and 3 footnotes.)
