THE PRESENT STATUS OF SCHOOL DESEGREGATION AND PLANS TO FURTHER FACILITATE THE TRANSITION OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS IN SUSSEX COUNTY, DELAWARE.... INTERIM REPORT.
CORNING, HOBART M.
THIS REPORT INDICATES THAT EACH SCHOOL DISTRICT IN SUSSEX COUNTY HAS CARRIED OUT PREVIOUSLY FORMULATED PLANS TO PREPARE FOR THE CHANGE FROM UNIRACIAL TO BIRACIAL SCHOOLS. TEN ALL-NEGRO SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN PHASED OUT, AND STUDENTS AND MOST OF THE STAFF HAVE BEEN ABSORBED INTO FORMERLY ALL-WHITE SCHOOLS. SOME INTEGRATED ACTIVITIES FOR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS HAVE TAKEN PLACE. THE PUBLIC IS SAID TO HAVE BEEN GENERALLY COOPERATIVE, AND DESEGREGATION HAS BEEN FREE OF CONFLICT AND OPPOSITION. IT IS FELT THAT INTEGRATION IN THESE DESEGREGATED SCHOOLS WOULD BE GREATLY FACILITATED BY PROFESSIONAL INSERVICE INSTITUTES WHICH FOCUS BOTH ON GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS AND ON LOCAL NEEDS. THE REPORT INCLUDES BRIEF DESCRIPTIONS OF FOUR CONFERENCES WHICH WERE ADDRESSED BY EXPERT CONSULTANTS, AND ONE PART OF THE DOCUMENT DEALS WITH THE SPECIAL PROBLEM OF PHASING OUT A PREVIOUSLY ALL-NEGRO COUNTYWIDE HIGH SCHOOL. IT HAD BEEN PROPOSED THAT THIS MODERN AND WELL-EQUIPPED FACILITY BE CONVERTED INTO A COMMUNITY COLLEGE, A PROPOSAL WHICH HAS BEEN APPROVED BY THE STATE LEGISLATURE. A BOARD OF TRUSTEES IS PRESENTLY PLANNING A COMPREHENSIVE 2-YEAR COMMUNITY COLLEGE AND TECHNICAL INSTITUTE FOR THE SITE. (NH)
