Date Issued:

Summary:
This study is a descriptive analysis of a population of public secondary school administrators in the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The Southern Association is composed of eleven states in the southeast region of the United States and presently consists of 2,939 schools. The purpose of the study was to reveal practices which school administrators may follow to improve the management of extracurricular activities in the schools which they administer. The author determined the present status of activities in the schools of The Southern Association with regard to 25 validated principles of management gleaned from the literature. The information collected in 1944 by J. Lloyd Trump in a similar study of the North Central Association was updated and the two studies were compared to determine the differences in the data of 1944 and 1975. The instrument was returned by the administrators in 334 schools in the Southern Association. Practices revealed in the study were evaluated in relation to the 25 principles of management and compared to the data given in the report of 1944. The following conclusions are stated: 1. There is not as much need for precise definition of the place and function of extracurricular activities as there was 30 years ago but some need remains. The place and the function of activities is well defined and accepted in most schools . 2. There is still a need for increased concern over the management of the extracurricular program. The management of finances shows the greatest improvement. Some gain is shown in other areas as well. 3. There is continuing need for frequent evaluation and follow-up in the entire extracurricular program. There has been significant improvement in this area but much more needs to be done. The management of extracurricular activities continues to be a major concern of the public high schools of today. Increased understanding of successful strategies in management will enable administrators to improve the effectiveness of the extracurricular activities program.
