THE DROPOUTS DID COME BACK, A SPECIAL SUMMER GUIDANCE SCHOOL PROGRAM.
HICKMAN, RALPH D.
A SPECIAL SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAM FOR 60 SELECTED HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUTS WAS CONDUCTED BY A COUNTY SCHOOLS OFFICE. A MAJOR PURPOSE WAS TO PREPARE THESE DROPOUTS, ATTITUDINALLY AND EDUCATIONALLY, TO REENTER A REGULAR SCHOOL PROGRAM. THE THREE COUNSELORS WERE ASSIGNED 20 STUDENTS EACH. THE STUDENTS WERE REQUIRED TO ATTEND DAILY CLASSES IN MATHEMATICS, ENGLISH, READING, COUNSELING, AND ACTIVITIES. PARENT CONFERENCES WERE AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE TOTAL PROGRAM. THE CURRICULUM INCORPORATED AN ANALYTICAL APPROACH TOWARD PROBLEM-SOLVING WHICH ALLOWED THE STUDENT TO REALIZE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF SUCCESS IN HIS WORK EACH DAY. FOLLOWUP STUDIES INCLUDING MONTHLY INTERVIEWS CONDUCTED SINCE THE FIRST PROGRAM IN 1964 OFFERED PROOF THAT A SIMILAR PROGRAM WOULD BE OFFERED IN 1965 TO ANOTHER GROUP OF DROPOUTS. SUCCESSFUL PRACTICES EMPLOYED IN THE SPECIAL SUMMER SCHOOL HAVE BEEN EMULATED BY OTHER SCHOOLS AS PREVENTIVE MEASURES.
