A SCHOOL-TO-EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM FOR THE SYRACUSE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM, 1963-64.
FANTINI, MARIO D.
STEP IS A STATE-SPONSORED EXPERIMENTAL PROJECT DESIGNED TO HELP PUPILS NOW 15 YEARS OF AGE WHO HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AS POTENTIAL DROPOUTS AND TO PUT IN EFFECT A PROGRAM OF INSTRUCTION AND SCHOOL SUPERVISED WORK-EXPERIENCE THAT WILL DEVELOP THOSE HABITS, ATTITUDES, AND SKILLS WHICH WILL ENABLE THE PUPILS TO OBTAIN SUITABLE EMPLOYMENT WHEN THEY LEAVE SCHOOL, OR, IN SOME CASES, REKINDLE THE SPARK FOR EDUCATION. THE CURRICULUM WILL INCLUDE GROUP AND INDIVIDUAL MEETINGS WITH THE TEACHER-COORDINATOR TO CONSIDER THE LABOR MARKET AND EMPLOYEE RESPONSIBILITIES, AND MATHEMATICS, SOCIAL STUDIES, AND ENGLISH FROM THE NORMAL SCHOOL CURRICULUM WILL BE STUDIED. THE WORK-EXPERIENCE PART OF THE PROGRAM WILL CONSIST OF 15 HOURS OF EMPLOYMENT PER WEEK. CONCENTRATION WILL BE ON PRIVATE ESTABLISHMENTS, AND EMPLOYERS WILL FURNISH A SERIES OF PLANNED EXPERIENCES. THE STUDENTS' PROGRESS WILL BE REPORTED TO THE COORDINATOR THROUGH WRITTEN FORMS AND CONSULTATION. A PSYCHIATRIC TEAM WILL BE UTILIZED TO MAXIMIZE THE EFFECT OF THE PROGRAM ON THE STUDENTS. A DIAGRAM OF THE ALTERNATIVES AVAILABLE TO A STUDENT WHO HAS COMPLETED THE PROGRAM IS INCLUDED. IN THE SELECTION PROCESS STUDENTS WILL BE REFERRED BY ALL JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL GUIDANCE COUNSELORS, AND PARENT INTERVIEWS WILL BE REQUIRED FOR ALL WHO ENTER THE PROGRAM. APPENDED ARE CHARTS WHICH SHOW THE RELATIONSHIP OF STEP TO THE MADISON AREA PROJECT AND TO THE OVERALL PROGRAM DEALING WITH THE DROPOUT.
