ANNUAL REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS. Every report should contain a table of contents, showing not only the general headings treated in the report, but also the subheads. Such reports should also contain a carefully prepared index. These two items make usable the school report and are important factors in its make-up. Every annual report of a city superintendent should also contain tables showing enrollment, distribution of enrollment, withdrawals, distribution of withdrawals, nonpromotions, distribution of nonpromotions, etc. Information upon which these figures may be compiled should be gathered on forms similar to those which are named immediately below by title and which are printed on the pages following with the exception of all but one of those forms which pertain to high schools. As the high-school forms are similar in all essential respects to those for the elementary schools, it has not seemed necessary to print them. These same forms may also be used in the superintendent's annual report for the presentation of statistics upon these same points. |
