Summary

The awareness of the effects of stress on school personnel and its effects on student achievement led to the formation of a committee to examine the problem and establish some objectives. A copy of the questionnaire submitted to the personnel of the Worchester, Massachusetts, Public Schools is presented. Job related factors were listed with responses to be checked on a scale ranging from no stress to high stress. Results of the survey appear in tabular form, giving the reactions of teachers, administrators, traveling teachers, aides, and clerical workers. Stress factors consistently rated as highest were: involuntary transfer, reduction in force, discipline, and salary. Comparison is made between this survey and similar surveys conducted in other school systems. Some actions being considered for the reduction of stress are discussed. (JD)
