HOW A CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL PROVIDES BETTER EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES.
RUSHING, DONALD
THE RIVER VIEW SCHOOL DISTRICT IN COSHOCTON COUNTY, OHIO, HAS EMERGED SINCE 1957 AS A RESULT OF CONSOLIDATION OF SMALL RURAL SCHOOLS IN THE COUNTY. THIS CONSOLIDATED DISTRICT NOW HAS ONE HIGH SCHOOL (GRADES 9-12) WITH AN ENROLLMENT OF 1000 STUDENTS. AS A RESULT OF CONSOLIDATION, THE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ARE NOW PROVIDED BETTER EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES. SOME OF THESE OPPORTUNITIES INCLUDE--(1) INCREASED COURSE OFFERINGS, (2) ADDITIONAL COCURRICULAR ACTIVITIES, (3) MORE EFFECTIVE TEACHER UTILIZATION, (4) BETTER BALANCE IN CLASS SIZE, AND (5) ADDITIONAL STUDENT PERSONNEL SERVICES. TEST RESULTS SHOW THE SENIORS OF THE CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL ACHIEVING ONE GRADE LEVEL ABOVE THEIR COUNTERPARTS IN THE SMALL HIGH SCHOOLS PRIOR TO CONSOLIDATION. ALSO, MORE SENIORS ARE NOW ENROLLING IN COLLEGE (NINE PER CENT). THE SPEAKER CONCLUDES THAT THE CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL OFFERS AN ACADEMIC CLIMATE WITH AN INCREASED EMPHASIS ON STUDENT COMPETITION. THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL OUTLOOK CONFERENCE ON RURAL YOUTH, OCTOBER 23-26, 1967, WASHINGTON, D. C., SPONSORED JOINTLY BY THE U.S. DEPARTMENTS OF AGRICULTURE, HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND WELFARE, INTERIOR, AND LABOR, OEO, AND THE PRESIDENT'S COUNCIL ON YOUTH OPPORTUNITY. (ES)
