FALL 1961 REPORT ON ENROLLMENT,

TEACHERS, AND SCHOOL HOUSING


Research Report 14
Division of Administration and Finance
Research Section














Thomas D. Bailey
State Superintendent of Public Instruction
Tallahassee, Florida


November, 1961























Research Report -14 is a revision of Research
Report -10 prepared by the Research and Sta-
tistics Section of the Division of Administra-
tion and Finance of the Florida State Depart-
ment 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 I, National Defense Education Act.








FALL 1961 REPORT ON ENROLLMENT,


TEACHERS, AND SCHOOL HOUSING

Every fall, each of Florida's county superintendents prepares 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 prin-
cipals' monthly reports on attendance. While the status of membership,
teachers, and school housing at the end of the first month is not indic-
ative 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 37,265 in 1960 to
39,724 in 1961, an increase of 2,h49 classroom 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 teach-
ers increased 4.47 percent, or 930 teachers; the number of secondary teach-
ers increased 9.29 percent, or 1,529 teachers.

Only 311 teachers with substandard credentials, certificates below Rank III,
were reported this fall. In 1960 there were 493 teachers employed on such
certificates. In all likelihood some additional teachers on temporary cer-
tificates will be employed during this school year as an emergency measure.
Of the teachers with substandard certificates, 95.2 percent teach in the
elementary grades.

Membership

Total membership in grades 1-12 was 1,025,521 at the end of the first month
of school this year. Last year, 1960, this total was 974,708. Thus an in-
crease of 50,813 pupils or 5.21 percent is shown for grades 1-12. Elemen-
tary membership increased 22,441 pupils over 1960 and secondary membership
increased 28,372 pupils. This is an increase of 3.93 percent and 7.03 per-
cent respectively in elementary and secondary grades. An increase from
4,457 in 1960 to 4,832 in 1961 is shown in kindergarten membership.
Pupils in Excess of Capacity

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 73,086 in 1960 to 77,803 in 1961. The overload
in the elementary schools remained fairly stable, with 38,155 in 1960 increas-
ing to 38,486 in 1961. The overcrowding situation appears to be more critical








in junior and senior high schools where the number in excess of capacity in-
creased from 34,931 pupils in 1960 to 39,317 in 1961. This is the third year
there has been a large increase in excess enrollment in the secondary grades.
The pupils reported in excess of capacity include part of those on double ses-
sions.

Double Sessions

The number of schools with pupils on double session decreased from 111 in 1960
to 100 in 1961. The number of pupils on double session decreased from h5,517
in 1960 to 40,703 in 1961. Five counties were able to eliminate schools on
double sessions, but three more counties had to go to double sessions in one
or more schools at the beginning of the 1961-62 school year. Schools on double
sessions are found in fourteen counties this year as compared to sixteen coun-
ties last year. In addition several counties are operating high schools on
"staggered sessions," but these are not included with double sessions. All of
the counties with a substantial number of pupils on double session have instruc-
tion rooms scheduled for completion during this school year. It is not antici-
pated 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 ex-
clude auditoriums, gymnasiums, lunchrooms, libraries, study halls and multi-
purpose rooms. At the beginning of the 1960-61 school year, a total of 33,064
instruction rooms were available. This includes all instruction rooms, even
those that are substandard, During the 1960-61 school year, 2,396 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 40O instruction rooms
were abandoned or converted to other use. There was a net gain of 1,992 in-
struction rooms making a total of 35,056 rooms available at the beginning of
the 1961-62 school year.

Instruction Rooms Needed

Superintendents see a need for 2,575 instruction rooms to provide for excess
enrollment, including pupils on double session, and for 2,128 instruction rooms
to replace unsatisfactory facilities now in use, This makes a current need,
as of the first month of school this year, of 4,703 instruction rooms. Against
this need, 2,002 instruction rooms are scheduled for completion during the
1961-62 school year. This leaves a net backlog of 2,903 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 dur-
ing the summer months.

Over the past six years for which comparable figures are available, a total of
13,723 instruction rooms have been made available. During this same period
1,308 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 as 4,703 classrooms excluding any allow-
ance for future growth. As shown below, slow progress is being made toward
reducing the total backlog.
