A SCHOOL TO EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM IN SYRACUSE, NEW YORK.
CANGEMI, JOSEPH P.
STEP, THE SCHOOL-TO-EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM, IS A STATE-SPONSORED EXPERIMENTAL PROJECT TO HELP PUPILS IN GRADES 7 THROUGH 10 WHO HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AS POTENTIAL DROPOUTS. IT IS DESIGNED TO PUT INTO EFFECT A PROGRAM OF INSTRUCTION AND SCHOOL-SUPERVISED WORK-EXPERIENCE THAT WILL DEVELOP HABITS, ATTITUDES AND SKILLS ENABLING STUDENTS TO OBTAIN SUITABLE EMPLOYMENT WHEN THEY LEAVE SCHOOL, OR TO INCREASE THEIR INTEREST IN COMPLETING THEIR EDUCATION. IN THE MORNING, PUPILS MEET WITH A COORDINATOR FOR HOME-ROOM AND TWO INSTRUCTIONAL PERIODS. EMPHASIS IS ON JOB GUIDANCE AND RELATED SUBJECTS. THEY REPORT FOR WORK EXPERIENCE IN THE AFTERNOON WITH PRIVATE INDUSTRY OR THE SCHOOL SYSTEM AND ARE PAID FOR PREVAILING WAGE STIPEND. THE WORK EXPERIENCE IS FULLY SUPERVISED AND RATED FOR SCHOOL CREDIT. STUDENTS CARRY FIVE SUBJECTS, TWO GIVEN BY THE COORDINATOR, TWO IN A REGULAR SCHOOL PROGRAM AND ONE IN JOB EXPERIENCE. SPECIFIC SCREENING AND TESTING PROCEDURES RECORD PUPIL EXPERIENCES. THE ORGANIZATION OF THE PROGRAM, INCLUDING THE FLOW AND ORGANIZATIONAL CHARTS OF THE DIFFERENT PHASES OF THE STEP OPERATION, IS PRESENTED. SAMPLE REPORTS, FORMS, AND QUESTIONNAIRES FOR TEACHERS, PUPILS, INDUSTRY AND PARENTS CONCLUDE THE REPORT.
