REPORT OF JOINT PLANNING COMMITTEE FOR MORE EFFECTIVE SCHOOLS TO THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS.
O'DALY, ELIZABETH C.; AND OTHERS
A PLAN IS PROPOSED BY REPRESENTATIVES OF THE SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT, THE TEACHERS' UNION, AND SUPERVISOR ORGANIZATIONS FOR A PROGRAM THAT WILL PROVIDE IMPROVED, INTEGRATED EDUCATION FOR DISADVANTAGED PUPILS. THE PROGRAM, TO BE ESTABLISHED IN VARIOUS CITY AREAS, WILL OFFER PREKINDERGARTEN CLASSES, AN EXTENDED SCHOOL DAY, AND REDUCED CLASS SIZE. INNOVATIVE METHODS, MODERN MATERIALS, AND ENRICHMENT WILL BE OFFERED BY AN EXPANDED STAFF WHO WILL BE GIVEN OPPORTUNITIES FOR PROFESSIONAL GROWTH. SPECIAL PROVISIONS WILL BE MADE FOR EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN. CITY AGENCIES AND SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS WILL BE ENCOURAGED TO COOPERATE IN OVERCOMING THE EFFECTS OF FAMILY MOBILITY ON EDUCATION BY ENCOURAGING PUPILS TO REMAIN IN THEIR ORIGINAL SCHOOLS. THE SCHOOL PLANT WILL BE MAXIMALLY USED AND LOCATED SO AS TO ACHIEVE INTEGRATION, AND OUTSIDE FACILITIES WILL BE AVAILABLE IF THEY ARE NEEDED. A SPECIALIST AT EACH SCHOOL WILL HELP TO PROMOTE GOOD HUMAN RELATIONS AMONG PUPILS, STAFF, AND COMMUNITY, AND PARENT ASSOCIATIONS AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS WILL HELP TO MOBILIZE COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT.
