Abstract

Problem: The purpose of this study was to discover what policies and practices exist in regard to the scheduling of the non-academic subjects in the junior high schools of northern Illinois. Procedure: The study followed the descriptive survey methodology and used a questionnaire to secure data after the general area of noon-hour was explored. The questionnaire was constructed and sent to principals of eighty schools in seventeen counties of northern Illinois. A covering letter requested the principals cooperation and included general instructions for answering the questionnaire. The final return of the questionnaires sent was 87.5 percent. Findings, Conclusions and Recommendations: 1. On the basis of responses, 88 percent of the schools reported having homerooms while 12 percent reported none. 2. The 10-minute daily homeroom period takes precedence over all other time allotments. 3. The homeroom period is used for taking roll and, in over half of the responses, also for a study hall. 4. Sixty-six of the seventy respondents, or 94.3 percent, have departmentalized junior high schools, 5. Ability grouping is used by 81.4 percent of the respondents.
