This report analyzes the resource use and efficiency of the Reserve Components' (RC's) new prototype school system established in the southeast section of the United States (Region C). The assessment of outcomes in FY95 (the execution year of the prototype) is based on data collected in both FY94 (the baseline year) and FY95 in Region C and Region E, a comparison region in the midwest. The document also discusses ways to further improve resource use and efficiency in the future — primarily by more fully utilizing school system capacity. Because the school system is currently falling far short of meeting RC training demand, the authors focus on more effectively using current school resources rather than on achieving manpower or dollar savings. However, if training requirements decrease in the future, the results of this research could be applied to achieve resource savings. This report is part of a larger effort by RAND's Arroyo Center to analyze the performance and efficiency of the RC school system.
