The ability to communicate clearly is essential for teachers to successfully teach students. Audio-visual (AV) materials and services can not only increase learning but also make it more permanent in the mind of the learner. The author seeks to examine Brockport’s Campus School to understand the school’s curriculum, objectives, teaching materials, and audio-visual equipment. Interviews and surveys of administrators, classroom teachers, and audio-visual coordinators were conducted and a catalog was made of the Audio-Visual Program’s organization and present equipment. The author explores the functions of the AV Program, the capabilities of the personnel, its budget, practices, and addresses a number of areas in need of improvement. Practical solutions are recommended with an emphasis on increasing knowledge of the AV department among the school’s teachers and increasing the department’s resources. A mixture of better planning and increased availability will allow AV materials to make a greater contribution to the students of Brockport.
