Research Report 22 is a revision of Research
Report 14 prepared by the Division of Research
of the Florida State Department of Education,

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









FALL 1962 REPORT ON ENROLLMENT,


TEACHERS, AND SCHOOL HOUSING


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 prin-
eipals' 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 39,724 in 1961 to
1,727 in 1962, an increase of 2,003 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 3.29 percent, or 716 teachers; the number of secondary teach-
ers increased 7.16 percent, or 1,287 teachers.

Only 321 teachers with substandard credentials, certificates below Rank III,
were reported this fall. In 1961 there were 311 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, 90.0 percent teach in the
elementary grades.

Membership

Total membership in grades 1-12 was 1,088,948 at the end of the first month
of school this year, Last year, 1961, this total was 1,025,521. Thus an
increase of 63,427 pupils or 6.18 percent is shown for grades 1-12. Elemen-
tary membership increased 30,163 pupils over 1961 and secondary membership
increased 33,264 pupils. This is an increase of 5.08 percent and 7,70 per-
cent respectively in elementary and secondary grades. An increase from
4,832 in 1961 to 4,993 in 1962 is shown in kindergarten membership, Member-
ship at the close of the first month is given for each grade in Table III.

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 decreased from 77,803 in 1961 to 73,830 in 1962. The overload
in the elementary schools decreased from 38,486 in 1961 to 32,612 in 1962.
The overcrowding situation appears to be more critical in junior and senior







high schools where the number in excess of capacity increased from 39,317
pupils in 1961 to 4l,218 in 1962. This is the fourth 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 sessions.

Double Sessions

The number of schools with pupils on double session decreased from 100 in
1961 to 95 in 1962. The number of pupils on double session decreased from
40,703 in 1961 to 22,110 in 1962. Four counties were able to eliminate
schools on double sessions, but four more counties had to go to double
sessions in one or more schools at the beginning of the 1962-63 school year.
Schools on double sessions are found in fourteen counties this year, the
same number of counties as 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 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 1961-62 school year, a total
of 35,056 instruction rooms were available. This includes all instruction
rooms, even those that are substandard. During the 1961-62 school year,
2,310 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 335 instruction rooms were abandoned or converted to other use.
There was a net gain of 1,975 instruction rooms making a total of 37,031
rooms available at the beginning of the 1962-63 school year.


Instruction Rooms Needed

Superintendents see a need for 2,494 instruction rooms to provide for excess
enrollment, including pupils on double session, and for 1,971 instruction
rooms to replace unsatisfactory facilities now in use. This makes a current
need, as of the first month of school this year, of 4,465 instruction rooms.
Against this need, 1,759 instruction rooms are scheduled for completion dur-
ing the 1962-63 school year. This leaves a net backlog of 2,975 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 need-
ed for growth during this year and next summer. Most of the growth normally
takes place during the summer months.

Over the past seven years for which comparable figures are available, a total
of 16,033 instruction rooms have been made available. During this same period
1,643 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 4,465 classrooms excluding any allow-
ance for future growth. As shown below, slow progress is being made toward
reducing the total backlog.
