PARKER, ROBERT E.
REGULATIONS, SCHEDULES, AND SUGGESTED ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES FOR SECONDAY LEVEL SUMMER SCHOOLS ARE INCLUDED IN AN ADMINISTRATIVE HANDBOOK. SPECIFIC ENTRIES DEAL WITH SUCH TOPICS AS PURPOSES OF THE SUMMER SCHOOLS, REQUIREMENTS FOR APPROVAL OF A SCHOOL, REGIONAL COOPERATION, CONSERVATION OF TALENT PROGRAMS, VARIOUS REQUIREMENTS AND CREDIT FACTORS, EXAMINATIONS, FEES AND TUITION, AND SPECIAL COURSE INFORMATION. THE PURPOSES OF REGISTERED SUMMER SECONDARY SCHOOLS ARE ENRICHMENT, REMEDIAL EDUCATION, ACCELERATION, THE SATISFACTION OF SPECIAL COLLEGE ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS, AND THE COMPLETION OF HIGH SCHOOL COURSES FOR VETERANS. BETWEEN 1950 AND 1964 SUMMER HIGH SCHOOL ENROLLMENTS INCREASED FROM 56,030 TO 260,941. AN INNOVATION STARTED IN 1958 WAS THE PROVISION BY BOARDS OF EDUCATION OF SUMMER INSTRUCTION TO AREA OR REGIONAL SUMMER SCHOOLS WHICH ARE COOPERATIVELY PLANNED. ANOTHER RECENT DEVELOPMENT WAS THE CONSERVATION OF TALENT PROGRAMS WHICH RECRUIT AND INSTRUCT STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL TALENTS IN ART, MUSIC, DRAMATICS, OR THE PRACTICIAL ARTS. THE SUBJECT AREAS DISCUSSED IN THE HANDBOOK WERE DRIVER EDUCATION, MUSIC, BUSINESS, AND DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION. THE COURSES OFFERED IN SUMMER SECONDARY SCHOOLS INCLUDE ALL THE GENERAL ACADEMIC AREAS PLUS BUSINESS, MUSIC, ART, AND INDUSTRIAL ARTS. IN 1964, 45 CREDIT COURSES WERE LOCALLY DEVELOPED, EVALUATED, AND APPROVED, AND WERE ADDED TO THE CREDIT OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE STATEWIDE. NONCREDIT COURSES WERE ALSO PROVIDED, A TOTAL OF 315 BEING OFFERED IN 1964.
