Research Report 59-60-4 is the fourth of a series
of statistical studies being prepared by the Re-
search and Statistics Section of the Division of
Administration and Finance of the Florida State
Department of Education.

The preparation of these reports is one phase in
the implementation of Florida's plan for improving
statistical services of the State Department of
Education under the provisions of Title X, National
Defense Education Act.







Each fall the 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 are taken from the principals' monthly
reports on attendance. While the status of membership, teachers, and
school housing at the end of the first month is not indicative of the
entire year, these reports do permit comparisons for a like period
from year to year. They provide the only source of current state-
wide statistics.


Teachers

The total number of classroom teachers increased from 32,521
in 1958 to 35,286 in 1959, an increase of 2,765 teachers. These
figures exclude junior college personnel 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 7.05 per cent, or 1,318
teachers; the number of secondary teachers increased 10.46 per cent,
or 1,447 teachers.

Only 432 teachers with substandard credentials, certificates
below Rank III, were reported this fall. In 1958 there were 516
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 certificates, 94 per cent teach in the elementary
grades.


Membership

Total membership in grades 1-12 was 916,318 at the end of the
first month of school this year. Last year, 1958, this total was
853,665. Thus an increase of 62,653 pupils, or 7.34 per cent is
shown for grades 1-12. Elementary membership increased 25,576
pupils over 1958 and secondary membership increased 37,077 pupils.
This is an increase of 4.92 per cent and 11.09 per cent respectively
in elementary and secondary grades. A small decrease from 3,222 in
1958 and 3,173 in 1959, is shown in kindergarten membership,


Pupils in Excess of Capacity

The number of pupils in excess of the number that can be accom-
modated, without multiple sessions, in the instruction rooms of
accessible publicly-owned school plants dropped from 76,112 in 1958
to 71,503 in 1959. Overloading in secondary schools, however, showed
an increase from 25,153 in 1958 to 27,777 in 1959. Thus while some
progress was made in alleviating over-crowding in elementary schools


-1-









the situation appears to have become more critical in junior and senior
high schools. The pupils reported in excess of capacity include part
of those on double sessions.


Double Sessions

The number of schools with pupils on double session decreased
from 129 in 1958 to 110 in 1959. However, the number of pupils on
double session increased from 50,677 in 1958 to 52,546 in 1959. Four
counties were able to eliminate schools on double sessions, but six
counties had to go to double sessions in one or more schools at the
beginning of the 1959-60 school year. Schools on double sessions are
found in seventeen counties this year as compared to fifteen counties
last year. All but one of the counties with 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 avail-
able 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 multipurpose-rooms. At the beginning of the 1958-59
school year, a total of 28,169 instruction rooms were available. This
includes all instruction rooms, even those that are substandard. Dur-
ing the 1958-59 school year, 2,482 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 con-
struction of a new library. During this same period 177 instruction
rooms were abandoned or converted to other use. There was a net gain
of 2,305 instruction rooms making a total of 30,474 rooms available
at the beginning of the 1959-60 School year.


Instruction Rooms Needed

Superintendents see a need for 2,403 instruction rooms to provide
for excess enrollment, including pupils on double session, and for
2,388 instruction rooms to replace unsatisfactory facilities now in
use. This makes a current need, as of the first month of school this
year, of 4,791 instruction rooms. Against this need, 1,799 instruc-
tion rooms are scheduled for completion during the 1959-60 school year.
This leaves a net backlog of 3,231 instruction rooms even if all sche-
duled 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.

presented in the following tables. This is a status report as of
