Cleveland Public Schools, OH.
THE ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO PROVIDE PROPER EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES FOR THE CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED. THE ACTIVITIES INITIATED SINCE OCTOBER 1961 INCLUDE THE REORGANIZATION OF THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAM AND AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES. THE REORGANIZATION IS STILL IN THE PLANNING STAGES, BUT FEATURES BEING CONSIDERED ARE--SELF-CONTAINED CLASSROOMS, TEAM-TEACHING, CURRICULUM FLEXIBILITY AND ADMINISTRATIVE DECENTRALIZATION. ONE SCHOOL PROVIDES A CLASSROOM PROGRAM DESIGNED TO INCREASE THE PERSONAL CONTACT BETWEEN FACULTY MEMBERS AND PARENTS. IN ADDITION TO A RECREATION PROGRAM, A SATURDAY MORNING READING PROGRAM FOR RETARDED READERS WAS IN OPERATION. AN ENRICHMENT EXPERIENCE CLUB, SUPERVISED AFTER SCHOOL STUDY PERIODS, AND A REMEDIAL ARITHMETIC PROGRAM HAVE BEEN INITIATED. PROGRAMS FOR IMPROVING EDUCATION AMONG IMMIGRANT, HIGHLY MOBILE OR OTHER CULTURALLY LIMITED FAMILIES HAVE BEEN IN OPERATION. A HOME VISITATION PROGRAM HAS IMPROVED HOME-SCHOOL RELATIONSHIPS AND PROVIDED INCREASED INFORMATION ON STUDENT BACKGROUNDS. TEACHER WORKSHOPS IN READING HAVE BEEN HELD TO BROADEN THE JUNIOR HIGH READING PROGRAM. DAY CAMP EXPERIENCES ARE BEING PLANNED FOR ELEMENTARY AND JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL PUPILS. A SOCIAL WORKER HAS BEEN ASSIGNED TO THE PROGRAM.
