THE HIGHER HORIZONS PROGRAM, AN ANALYSIS OF THE INTERIM REPORTS.
OTHS, FLORENCE; AND OTHERS
AFTER 5 MONTHS OF EXISTENCE, THE THIRD GRADE PROGRAM WAS EVALUATED. ITS PURPOSE WAS TO RAISE THE CULTURAL, EDUCATIONAL, AND VOCATIONAL SIGHTS OF ALL PUPILS THROUGH CURRICULUM IMPROVEMENT, REMEDIAL INSTRUCTION, TEACHER WORKSHOPS AND SEMINARS, IDENTIFICATION AND ENCOURAGEMENT OF TALENT, GUIDANCE AND PARENT WORKSHOPS, AND COUNSELING. TEACHERS HAVE A GREATER WILLINGNESS TO TRY NEW APPROACHES, A KEENER APPRECIATION OF NEED FOR PROFESSIONAL GROWTH, AND A GREATER INTEREST AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE INDIVIDUAL PUPIL. THE SPECIAL PERSONNEL, SUCH AS AUXILIARY TEACHERS AND TEACHER TRAINING CONSULTANTS, ARE MORE WILLING TO COOPERATE THROUGH VISITATION AND CONFERENCES. STUDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO USE THEIR TIME WISELY AS THEY DEVELOP THEIR TALENTS AND INTERESTS. STUDENTS HAVE BETTER SELF-MOTIVATION, AND THERE HAVE BEEN REDUCTIONS IN SUBJECT AREA WEAKNESSES. SUPERVISORS HAVE HAD AN INCREASED AWARENESS OF THEIR ROLE IN IMPROVING INSTRUCTION. THERE HAS BEEN OVERALL INCREASED INTEREST THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOLS, RESULTING IN BETTER OVERALL MORALE. HIGHER HORIZON CONCEPTS HAVE BEEN EXTENDED TO OTHER GRADES. BETTER PARENTAL AND COMMUNITY COOPERATION HAS BEEN ONE OUTSTANDING RESULT.
