Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1975 
57 p. 

This study compares patterns of resource allocation in school districts with different enrollment experiences ranging from substantial growth to substantial decline. In general, the study focuses on examination of the "parameters of adjustment" of public school systems with varying growth histories. Colorado was selected because some of its characteristics made it an ideal region for the implementation of the study. Some of the major hypotheses to be considered are (1) the pattern of resource allocation is significantly different among the growing and declining enrollment systems, (2) levels of student achievement differ among school systems encountering different growth rates, (3) the level and structure of the staff has a tendency to stabilize in the negative growth systems, and (4) the rate of innovation is retarded in the systems encountering stable or negative enrollments. The study is organized into three major sections. The first describes the data collected and performs a preliminary analysis. The second formulates and analyzes a questionnaire used to test the responses of administrators to decline. The last section uses a case study approach to further analyze the effects of decline on the local school district. (Author/IRT)
