ANALYSIS OF MEMBERSHIP AT THE CLOSE


OF EACH MONTH OF SCHOOL, 1967-68


The data included in this report are compiled from Item 30, "Membership
at Close of Each Month of School," Principal's Annual Report on Attendance,
Form At-14p, submitted to the State Department of Education at the close of
the 1967-68 school year. Data pertaining to adult and vocational schools
with classes extending beyond the regular school year are excluded from the
tabulations in this report.

This is the eleventh year for which the Research Division has made a
complete tabulation of monthly membership figures. Data for 1956-57 are
based on incomplete reports. Research Report 68 is a statistical study
prepared in an effort to establish long range growth patterns of value
for educational planning purposes.

Table 1 shows, for a ten year period, a comparison of the change in
membership at the close of each month of school from the membership at
the close of the first month, Table 2 gives the comparable percent of
change.

Table 3 gives the change in membership at the close of each month
from membership at the close of the first month for each district for the
1967-68 school year, This membership change is given by grade group 1-6,
7-9, 10-12, as well as for the district as a whole. The numbers shown
in this table for each month should be related back to the membership
shown for the first month.


PEAK MONTH

Traditionally, the membership pattern in Florida schools has been
thought of as a horseshoe shaped curve, rising sharply during the winter
months and then dropping back toward the end of school. There has been
a tendency for the peak membership period to level out, or more nearly
approach the beginning membership, Of course, some districts still
experience peak months that are substantially above the beginning and
ending months. A study of Table 3 will emphasize the different member-
ship patterns

For the third time in four years the fifth month was the peak membership
month. It has maintained its position prior to 1962-63, when the fifth
month was the peak month for the state as a whole. There is considerable
variation among the districts as to the month in which maximum membership is
reached. This variation is shown below. The number in parentheses indicates
the peak month for the previous year. For example, Bay County reached its
peak membership at the first month of 1967-68 and in the first month of
1966-67.

MEMBERSHIP CHANGE

Forty-six districts showed a loss in total membership between the end
of the first month and the close of school in 1967-68. At the elementary
level forty-eight districts showed a gain. Thirteen districts showed some
net increase at the end of the year at the junior high level. Only one
district, Charlotte, had a net increase at the senior high level.

As shown above, the net membership loss during the year for the state
whole was 12,752 pupils. This net is a little misleading inasmuch as
of the junior-senior high school loss was offset by a gain in grades

LAST MONTH OF SCHOOL


The greatest net change in membership comes during the last month of
school each year--between the end of the eighth month and the close of the
school year.

The exact cause of this ninth month drop has not been identified positively,
In tourist districts one explanation is that it is due to winter residents with-
drawing pupils in order to return to other states. Decreasing winter farm
activity late in the school year may be a partial explanation in districts with
a large number of migratory farm workers. Early vacations may be a factor. It
appears that the pupils withdrawing during the last month of school are distri-
buted fairly proportionately among the grade levels.

It does appear that the ninth month loss is of a different nature than the
loss during other months where such loss is not distributed proportionately
among the grade groups. This could prove a fruitful area for investigation in
those districts where the loss is substantial. Could a readjustment in the
school calendar reduce this loss and increase Minimum Foundation Program funds
allocated?

DROPOUTS

This report is not a dropout study. It is concerned with net membership
each month--beginning membership plus re-entries less withdrawals, Thus new
students transferring into a school system during the year can offset with-
drawals. These data do have limited significance for those interested in the
dropout problem.

In those districts where the elementary school membership increases or
holds reasonably stable, but junior and senior high school membership de-
creases during the year, the most probable explanation must be dropouts at the
high school level. It is probable that families with younger children are
more mobile than families with older children. However, it is not a reasonable
assumption that most of the people moving into Florida have children in the
elementary grades whereas most of the people moving out of the state have
children at the secondary level.

DISTRICT STUDY NEEDED

Each district should examine carefully the figures for its own schools.
At the local level, it is possible to prepare detailed tabulations on a
school-by-school basis. In this way it should be possible to identify those
schools and even grades in which further investigation is needed. Inasmuch
as state foundation program funds are directly related to pupils in school,
such an effort at the local level could result in considerable financial
return to a district as well as good to the pupils who otherwise might be
lost to the school situation,

There are many situations where elementary membership increases during
the course of the school year, but junior and senior high membership declines
steadily, If the schools of a district where this pattern prevails are ade-
quately staffed at the beginning of the school year, then, unless changes are
made in the assignment of teachers, the elementary grades will be understaffed
and the secondary grades will be overstaffed as the year goes on, This has
significance in planning the allocation of instructional personnel.









A number of districts experience peak membership at all levels early
in the school year. In such districts classroom space, desks, books, and
other facilities must be provided at the beginning of the school year and
become unused or unnecessary as the year moves along. Investigation may
reveal that the decline in membership is beyond the control of school
authorities, in which case little constructive action can be taken. On
the other hand, if the district can take steps to retain membership during
the year, more efficient use can be made of facilities, teachers, and
supplies already provided and increased minimum foundation and capital
outlay funds can be earned.


MISCELLANEOUS MEMBERSHIP DATA

Table 4 presents some miscellaneous membership data. Column I answers
the question of growth over the summer months from the close of one year to
the beginning of the next year. It shows the change in membership from the
close of the 1966-67 school year to the first month of the 1967-68 year.
State-wide, there were 49,990 more pupils on the active roll at the end of
the first month of 1967-68 than were on the roll when school closed in
1966-67.

Column II answers the question of growth from the first month of one
year to the first month of the succeeding year. From the first month of
the 1966-67 year to the first month of the 1967-68 year, there was an
increase of 41,877 pupils.

Column III gives the average daily membership for 1966-67 and Column
IV gives the average daily membership for 1967-68. Column V is the differ-
ence between Column III and Column IV, or the change in average daily
membership. Twelve districts had a lower average daily membership in
1967-68 than in 1966-67.


PERCENT OF MEMBERSHIP CHANGE DURING 1967-68

Table 5 gives the percent of change in membership by grade group between
the end of the first month and the close of the 1967-68 school year for each
district. It is the percent of gain or loss in membership during the year.
Overall, there was a net decrease of .99 percent. Grades 1-6 showed a gain
of .96 percent as compared to a net loss of 1.18 percent in grades 7-9 and
a net loss of 6.22 percent in grades 10-12.


ADULT AND VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS

Membership data for special adult and vocational schools with an
irregular membership pattern or with classes extending beyond the regular
school year are not included in any of the regular tables or summaries
in this report. Data for these schools also were omitted from previous
reports in this series. The excluded schools and membership data for
these schools follow immediately.
