The problem of this study was to answer the question: "How to community groups participate in the formation and interim operation of unified school districts?" Interim operation is the period of time following a successful election when the newly chosen governing board is preparing for the actual operation of the district, which occurs on the first succeeding or second succeeding July 1, depending upon the date of the election.4
The first purpose of this research was to discover (1) the attitudes of community groups toward unification, (2) the manner in which community groups supported or opposed unification, and (3) the ways that community groups involved themselves with the governing boards in the interim operation of the new districts.
The second purpose was to recommend changes in legislation
The third purpose was to recommend guidelines to local communities for otimum participation in the unification movement.
