FALL 1968 REPORT ON MEMBERSHIP,


TEACHERS, AND SCHOOLHOUSING


Each fall, Florida's county superintendents prepare a special report
covering membership, classroom teachers, and current status of school-
housing, The situation is covered as of the end of the first month
of school. Most of the data used in this report are taken from the
principals' monthly reports on attendance. While the status of
membership, teachers, and schoolhousing at the end of the first month
is not indicative of the entire year in a particular county, these
reports do permit comparisons for a like period from year to year.
They provide the most current source available of state-wide statistics.


Teachers

The total number of full-time classroom teachers increased from 52,802
in 1967 to 57,172 in 1968, an increase of 4,370 classroom teachers.
These figures exclude junior college personnel and part-time teachers
but include kindergarten teachers. Also excluded are principals,
supervisors, librarians, and other instructional personnel not teaching
at least half-time. The number of elementary teachers increased 7.58
percent, or 2,119 teachers; the number of secondary teachers increased
9.06 percent, or 2,251 teachers. Beginning with the fall 1968 report,
part-time teachers are reported on a full-time equivalency basis. For
the 1968 first month period this worked out to 61.4 positions at the
elementary level and 150.7 positions at the secondary level. Comparable
figures for last year are not available so part-time positions are not
included in the above comparisons.

Only 250 teachers with substandard credentials, certificates below
Rank III, were reported this fall. In 1967 there were 293 teachers
employed on such certificates. In all likelihood some additional
teachers on temporary certificates will be employed during this school
year as an emergency measure. Of the teachers with substandard certi-
ficates, 80.80 percent teach in the elementary grades.


Membership

Total membership in grades 1-12 was 1,329,137 at the end of the first
month of school this year. Last year, 1967, this total was 1,290,899.










Thus an increase of 38,238 pupils or 2.96 percent is shown for grades 1-12.
Elementary membership increased 12,112 pupils over 1967 and secondary
membership increased 26,126 pupils. This is an increase of 1.70 percent
and 4.51 percent respectively in elementary and secondary grades. An
increase from 9,555 in 1967 to 26,709 in 1968 is shown in kindergarten
membership as a result of additional kindergarten units provided by the
1968 Special Legislative Session. First grade membership for the first
month of 1968-69 has shown a decrease of 2,011 pupils from the 1967-68
first month report. A first grade decrease was reported in about half
of the counties. In 1962, the number of resident births reversed its
upward climb and showed a decrease. The children born in 1962 normally
would be beginning school in the fall of 1968 so apparently this decline
in births is just beginning to be reflected in first grade membership.
Another factor affecting first grade membership is the increase in
pupils in the "ungraded" classification as a result of an increase in
exceptional child units authorized for 1968-69, Membership at the
close of the first month is given for each grade in Table 3.

First month membership and annual average daily membership (ADM) for
grades 1-12 have been very similar over the past few years when taken
on a consolidated state basis. There are considerable differences,
however, in counties taken individually.

1962-63 1,088,948 1,089,482


Pupils in Excess of Ca.pacit

The number of pupils in excess of the number that can be accommodated, with-
out multiple sessions,in the instruction rooms of accessible publicly-
owned school plants increased from 87,177 in 1967 to 106,622 in 1968. The
overload in the elementary schools decreased from 39,665 in 1967 to 38,949
in 1968. The overcrowding situation appears to be more critical in junior
and senior high schools, where the number in excess of capacity increased
from 57,512 pupils in 1967 to 67,673 in 1968. The pupils reported in
excess of capacity include part of those on double sessions. A comparison
of the total number of available classrooms and the total number of pupils
in a county may lead to incorrect conclusions. Full utilization of all
facilities is frequently impractical due to locations of the facilities


-2-










within a county and, in recent years, to implementation of freedom of
choice plans of school integration which results in overcrowding in
one school and surplus capacity in another.


Double Sessions

The number of schools with pupils on double session increased from 44
in 1967 to 62 in 1968. The number of pupils on double session increased
from 15,617 in 1967 to 23,929 in 1968. Three counties were able to
eliminate schools on double sessions, but five counties had to go to
double sessions at the beginning of the 1968-69 school year. Schools
on double sessions are found in nine counties this year, two more than
last year. Six counties have double sessions in secondary schools.
"Staggered sessions" are not included with double sessions since under
this system pupils are in school for a full or normal school day. Most
of the counties with a substantial number of pupils on double session
have instruction rooms scheduled for completion during this school year.
It is not anticipated that enough new rooms will be made available to
eliminate double sessions and also take care of normal growth.


Number of Instruction Rooms Available

Instruction rooms include regular classrooms, laboratories and shops,
but exclude auditoriums, gymnasiums, lunchrooms, libraries, study halls
and multi-purpose rooms. At the beginning of the 1967-68 school year,
a total of 45,494 instruction rooms were available. This includes all
instruction rooms, even those that are substandard. During the 1967-68
school year, 2,512 additional instruction rooms were made available.
This includes some rooms converted to instructional use such as the
conversion of a library into classrooms with the construction of a new
library. During this same period 465 instruction rooms were abandoned
or converted to other use. There was a net gain of 2,047 instruction
rooms making a total of 47,541 rooms available at the beginning of the
1968-69 school year. A substantial number of portable type classrooms
are in use, some having been added during 1967-68. Such classrooms may
be reasonably satisfactory on a temporary basis but are not generally
considered as satisfactory on a permanent basis. Not all temporary
type classrooms are reported by the counties as needing replacement.
During recent years some schools have been designed using an open
large space approach in which individual classrooms are not easily
identified. Equivalent classrooms have been reported in such situations.


Instruction Rooms Needed

Superintendents see a need for 3,379 instruction rooms to provide for
excess enrollment, including pupils on double sessions, and for 3,351
instruction rooms to replace unsatisfactory facilities now in use.










This makes a reported need, as of the first month of school this year,
of 6,730 instruction rooms. Against this need, 2,659 instruction rooms
are scheduled for completion during the 1968-69 school year. This leaves
a net backlog of 4,277 instruction rooms even if all scheduled rooms
are completed. It makes no allowance for growth. By the beginning of
school next year, additional rooms will be needed for growth during this
year and next summer, Most of the growth normally takes place during
the summer months as new residents move into Florida from other states.

Over the past thirteen years for which comparable figures are available,
a total of 28,620 instruction rooms have been made available. Not all of
these were new buildings since conversions also are included. During
this same period 3,778 classrooms have been abandoned or converted to
other than classroom use. Most of these abandoned classrooms were
obsolete and unsatisfactory or were in schools that have been consolidated.
The total backlog need at the end of the first month this year is set at
6,730 classrooms excluding any allowance for future growth. As shown in
the following table, no progress is being made toward reducing the total
backlog, which is now at its highest point in thirteen years.
