Student rights and responsibilities revisited by National School Public Relations Association( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because recent legislation and court decisions have expanded the rights of all students, schools of the 70s must educate them about the responsibilities that go with these newly recognized rights. A nationwide survey indicates that many schools have established grievance procedures based on open communication and clearly stated policies. And many have taken steps to ensure due process in suspension and expulsion and to safeguard confidentiality of student records. The report looks at the old issues of student government, the student press, and student discipline. The implications of Title ix and the legal responsibility of school board members for ensuring student rights are described. Useful as a handbook of dissemination techniques, the report is illustrated with samples from the content and graphics of student rights codes. (Author/MLF)

Differentiated staffing in schools by Joseph Stocker( Book )

5 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first section of this special report defines differentiated staffing and gives the opposing points of view of supporters who believe that it is needed to upgrade the quality of instruction, provide more individualized learning programs, and encourage good teachers to remain in the classroom, and of opponents who regard it as a form of merit pay. The need for the full participation of all the teaching staff in the design of the program is stressed, and some of the more common pitfalls and misunderstandings are outlined. Three profiles are included of school districts which have initiated differential staffing programs: 1) Temple City, Calif., Where the successful organization of Oak Avenue Intermediate School is discussed in depth; 2) Cherry Creek, Colo., Where three elementary schools have used differentiated staffing with varying success, where a junior high school staff is divided over the idea, which has not yet been implemented, and where the senior high school staff is strongly opposed to the idea; and 3) Kansas City, Mo., Where a new elementary school and junior high school were designed and the staff selected for differentiated staffing, and where preliminary findings suggest that the programs are succeeding. A list of 28 school districts throughout the country gives brief descriptions of other differentiated staffing programs already functioning or in the planning stage. (Mbm)

3 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An overview of environmental education programs throughout the United States is presented in this Education U.S.A. Special Report by the National School Public Relations Association. Six statewide and seven local programs are described which represent comprehensive and well conceived plans and display outstanding features. However, most programs lacked in some degree three criteria advocated by many authorities in the field: (1) environmentalism should be worked into every subject in the curriculum, (2) environmental education should be part of the school program from kindergarten through high school, and (3) environmental education should operate throughout the entire school year, with some summer experience outdoors if possible. Developments in higher education are also noted together with national programs of environmental education, the philosophy and objectives of environmental education, and a summary of the Environmental Education Act of 1970.

Alternative schools : why, what, where & how much by Lyn Broad( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both time and circumstance have convinced many a school district that it must find a better way to educate its students. For many districts the way has been alternative schools and programs that offer students a choice of goals, structures, and approaches to curriculum. One report estimated that as many as 5,000 alternative schools would be in operation by September of 1975. The National School Boards Association in surveying a sample of its members in 1975 found about 25 percent offered options in their districts; 66 percent in districts with more than 25,000 students offered options. The report concluded that the alternative school concept is definitely not on the fringe of American public school activity. A number of programs that are representative of how alternatives respond to some of the central issues in American education are described. How students are benefiting from the strengths of alternative schools and what educators are doing to circumvent the hazards are the core of this report. (Author/MLF)

Budget/finance campaigns : you can't afford to lose by National School Public Relations Association( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about successful bond issues and levy campaigns. While no one campaign blueprint works everywhere, there are certain definite components to almost every successful school finance election. These components are the product of a carefully planned political process. Successful campaigns are based on some givens that must be in evidence before the campaign begins--year-round communication, a reasonable issue with an understandable budget, citizen involvement that builds credibility, an individualized campaign that carefully considers its first announcement, leadership and unity, and a positive attitude. Lists of reasons why issues pass and fail are presented along with descriptions of successful programs and guidelines for building budget credibility, organizing a campaign, and surveying the community.

Releasing test scores : educational assessment programs, how to tell the public by National School Public Relations Association( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prepared by four specialists who have personally dealt with educational assessment programs and communications in both state departments and local school districts, this guide takes the reader through the steps of getting the word out: analyzing goals and audience needs; planning activities and resources--human and financial; putting plans into action; and evaluating results. Included are examples of ideas, timeliness, surveys, news releases, and other practical, use-tested details. All levels of educational organization--state departments to local staff-should be involved in the dissemination process. Although state departments can offer strategic advice and encourage media support, it's the action of the local districts that most critically influences students, parents, taxpayers, and staff. Suggestions are included for briefing staff and media so they can reinforce, rather than undercut, the program's purpose. And, finally, how a specific school handles the facts and figures in its own report to parents and the community is examined in detail. (Author)
