ENVISIONING A NEW KIND OF SCHOOL, A PLAN FOR REDESIGNING A TOTAL SCHOOL PROGRAM.
University City School District, MO.
BECAUSE OF GROUNDWORK ACCOMPLISHED IN THE COMPREHENSIVE PROJECT FOR IMPROVEMENT IN LEARNING AND OTHER COMPLEMENTARY FACTORS, THE SCHOOL DISTRICT OF UNIVERSITY CITY, MISSOURI, BELIEVES IT IS IN THE UNIQUE POSITION OF BEING ABLE TO COMPLETELY REVAMP ITS EDUCATIONAL STRUCTURE, RATHER THAN RENOVATING PIECEMEAL THE EXISTING FRAMEWORK, AS IS COMMONLY DONE. THE CREATION OF THE NEW KIND OF SCHOOL SYSTEM WOULD MOVE FORWARD SIMULTANEOUSLY IN FOUR INTERRELATED AREAS--CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT, SUPPORTIVE ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT, EVALUATION METHODOLOGY, AND RESEARCH COMMUNICATION. THE PHILOSOPHICAL GOAL OF THIS NEW SCHOOL WOULD BE TO CREATE AN EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM INTENDED TO AID STUDENTS IN BECOMING RESPONSIBLE, PERCEPTIVE, SELF-DIRECTED, SELF-EDUCATED, AND COMPETENT CITIZENS IN A SOCIETY WHICH WE CANNOT NOW ENVISION.
