THESE ARE YOUR SCHOOLS, GREENBURGH SCHOOL DISTRICT 8.
FITCH, GEORGE E.
PROBLEMS OF THE GREENBURGH SCHOOL DISTRICT 8 THAT HAVE RESULTED FROM ITS TRANSITION FROM A RURAL TO A SUBURBAN COMMUNITY ARE DISCUSSED. THE COMMUNITY IS ATTEMPTING TO PROVIDE THE BEST EDUCATIONAL INSTRUCTION AND FACILITIES TO THE CHILDREN OF THE DISTRICT. A LARGE SITE CONTAINS--A NEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND A SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL, ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICES, AND AREAS FOR ATHLETIC FIELDS, NATURE STUDY, FIELD TRIPS, AND COMMUNITY USES. SCHOOLS ARE ORGANIZED ON A GRADE BASIS, THE NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL CONCEPT IS ELIMINATED. EACH HAS A PRINCIPAL AND A SECRETARY. PSYCHOLOGISTS, THERAPISTS, AND OTHER SPECIAL TEACHERS ARE AVAILABLE IN THE SYSTEM. EACH CLASS IS LIMITED TO 25 STUDENTS, THE CLASSES ARE OF A HETEROGENEOUS NATURE HAVING IN-CLASS GROUPING. THE SECONDARY PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF ACADEMIC, COLLEGE-PREPARATORY, PREVOCATIONAL, AND TERMINATION EDUCATION STUDENTS. THE SALARY SCHEDULE FOR TEACHERS COMPARES FAVORABLY WITH OTHER LOCAL SALARY SCHEDULES. IT PROVIDES INCENTIVES FOR TEACHERS TO INCREASE THEIR ACADEMIC, PROFESSIONAL PREPARATION, AND TO CONTINUE TO TEACH IN THE DISTRICT. THE UNITY OF THE PARENT-TEACHER ASSOCIATION WITH THE SCHOOLS IS AN AID IN GETTING COMMUNITY APPROVAL OF SCHOOL BUDGETS AND REFERENDUMS.
