COMMUNITY SCHOOLS.
COMMUNITY SCHOOLS ARE DISCUSSED WITH SPECIFIC REFERENCES GIVEN TO PRELIMINARY PLANNING AND COORDINATION, PARTICIPANTS, ORGANIZATION OF PROGRAM, STAFF, EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, SERVICES, AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS, BEFORE-SCHOOL PROGRAMS, AND SCHOOL LUNCH AND BREAKFAST PROGRAMS. THE COMMUNITY SCHOOL EXTABLISHES A CLOSE WORKING RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE SCHOOL AND ALL PHASES OF THE COMMUNITY. A WIDE RANGE OF PROGRAMS SHOULD FUNCTION TO SERVE AS MANY INTEREST GROUPS AS POSSIBLE RATHER THAN FOCUSING INSTRUCTION ON SELECTED AREAS. EACH PROGRAM SHOULD BE DESIGNED SO THAT IT REMAINS FLEXIBLE AND RECEPTIVE TO CHANGE OR MODIFICATION WHEN NECESSARY. CERTIFIED INSTRUCTORS AND TRAINED SUBPROFESSIONALS SHOULD STAFF THE SCHOOLS TO ENSURE PROFESSIONAL SUPERVISION. EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS WHICH SHOULD BE CONSIDERED INCLUDE TUTORING, AFTER-HOURS STUDY CENTERS, AFTER-SCHOOL REMEDIAL PROGRAMS, HEALTH SERVICES, SUMMER SCHOOL, WORK-STUDY PROGRAMS, RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES, AND ADULT EDUCATION. GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING SERVICES SHOULD BE EXTENDED FROM THE REGULAR HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM INTO ELEMENTARY AND ADULT EDUCATION AREAS. LOW STUDENT-COUNSELOR RATIOS OF 10 TO 1 SHOULD BE ATTEMPTED. AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS SHOULD FOCUS MAINLY UPON REMEDIAL, ENRICHMENT, OR VOCATIONAL ACTIVITIES. MUSIC INSTRUCTION AND REMEDIAL LANGUAGE ACTIVITIES SHOULD BE CONDUCTED DURING THE HOURS BEFORE SCHOOL, FOR THE APPROACH HAS PROVED POPULAR. HOT LUNCH PROGRAMS SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED IN ALL RURAL AND MOST URBAN EDUCATIONAL PROJECTS WHICH ARE NOT CONDUCTED DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR. PROJECTS WHICH PROVIDE A HOT BREAKFAST TO CHILDREN ENROLLED IN SUMMER OR REGULAR SCHOOL PROGRAMS SHOULD BE DETERMINED BY SURVEYS INDICATING NEED AND PARENTAL ENDORSEMENT. A MID-MORNING SNACK SHOULD BE PROVIDED FOR PRESCHOOL OR ELEMENTARY CHILDREN.
