Scope and Content

The papers were packed in different boxes, but they seem to function in the same way:  that is, they document important official statistics relating to staff, enrollment, student teaching observations, and schedules.  The most complete of the yearly files are broken down term-by-term in great detail, with separate statistics for summer sessions.  The less complete yearly files are occasionally fragmentary.

This record series might well be the single best source of statistical and directory information about the Laboratory School from 1940 until 2006.Some yearly gatherings include student records and evaluations.  Use of that material is restricted.  However, most of the files are open and available for research.
