A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE--A REPORT TO ALL CITIZENS OF NEW ROCHELLE.
New Rochelle City Board of Education, NY.
THE PROPOSAL CALLS FOR AN EXTENSIVE REORGANIZATION OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF AND THE PHYSICAL FACILITIES OF THE SCHOOL OF NEW ROCHELLE, NEW YORK, IN ORDER TO UP-DATE THE SCHOOL SYSTEM AND TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF DE FACTO SEGREGATION BROUGHT ABOUT BY RESIDENTIAL HOUSING PATTERNS. A GENERAL DISCUSSION OF THE EDUCATIONAL FUTURE OF NEW ROCHELLE IS PROVIDED ALONG WITH INFORMATION NECESSARY TO AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE ADVISABILITY OF THE CHANGES RECOMMENDED. THE REASONS BEHIND AND THE COSTS OF EACH PROPOSAL ARE PRESENTED. PROPOSALS INCLUDE REORGANIZING THE GRADE ARRANGEMENT OF THE SCHOOL SYSTEM FROM A 6-3-3 PLAN, TO A 5-3-4 PLAN WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A NEW 4-YEAR COMPREHENSIVE HIGH SCHOOL. THE DISTRICT ADMINISTRATION WOULD BE REORGANIZED TO PROVIDE FOR MORE EFFICIENCY AND ECONOMY. WITH THE CLOSING OF CERTAIN OUT-OF-DATE AND OVERCROWED ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS IN THE INNER-CITY AREA, STUDENTS FROM THESE SCHOOLS WOULD HAVE THEIR CHOICE OF THE SCHOOLS THEY WISH TO ATTEND ELSEWHERE AND WOULD BE TRANSPORTED THERE AT THE EXPENSE OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. THE DISTRICT WOULD ALSO BEGIN PLANNING FOR A NEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TO HOUSE PUPILS IN THE CENTRAL AREA OF THE CITY AND WOULD PLAN TO REPLACE ALL FACILITIES OVER A HALF CENTURY OLD. AN OVERALL PLAN OF THE PROPOSALS IS INCLUDED WITH A TIMETABLE FOR PROPOSED IMPLEMENTATION.
