Abstract

One of the most significant and challenging problems now facing many state school systems is that of reorganizing the school districts into larger and more efficient local school administrative units. Leading educators have recognized the need for reorganization of school districts into larger administrative units. Although some school district reorganization plans have been passed by state legislatures during the past few years, reorganization has made relatively slow progress. The purpose of this study is to: (1) make a survey of the 1960-1961 school district organizational system in Brookings County, South Dakota; (2) make a comparison of the 1960-1961 organizational system with a proposed county unit plan. Statistical information for this study was gathered from various sources. Using the data collected, the proposed county unit plan was compared to the 1960-1961 organizational system under the following headings: (1) organization and administration (2) number of teachers and teacher-pupil ratios; (3) financial considerations; (4) transportation; (5) curriculum; and (6) school buildings.
