HIGH ROADS PROJECT.
BRAXTON, EDWARD; AND OTHERS
AS PART OF THE GREAT CITIES SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM, HIGH ROADS PROJECT IN THE DUNBAR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IS DESIGNED TO MOTIVATE PUPILS, PARENTS, AND TEACHERS TO ACHIEVE MAXIMUM POTENTIAL IN THEIR RESPECTIVE ROLES THROUGH EFFECTIVELY MOBILIZING AND UTILIZING THE TOTAL RESOURCES OF THE SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY. PLANS WERE DEVELOPED BY THE SCHOOL COMMUNITY COORDINATING TEAM DURING A SUMMER WORKSHOP. ORIENTATION PLANS WERE PROVIDED IN ORDER TO FOSTER WHOLEHEARTED ACCEPTANCE OF THE PROGRAM BY TEACHERS, PUPILS, PARENTS, AND OTHER MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY. RATHER THAN THE MASSIVE, "ONE SHOT" INFUSIONS OF INSPIRATION, MANY PHASES OF THE PROGRAM WILL BE CONTINUOUS AND WILL BE CARRIED OUT SIMULTANEOUSLY. SPECIFIC PLANS WERE LAID FOR ACTIVITIES IN ALL AREAS INVOLVING TEACHERS, PUPILS, PARENTS, HEALTH CARE STAFF, AND THE COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE. THESE INCLUDED ENLISTING THE COOPERATION OF CHURCHES, OTHER ORGANIZATIONS AND RETIRED TEACHERS. THE ORIENTATION PROGRAMS ARE LISTED FOR JULY - SEPTEMBER 1960.
