AN ADDENDUM TO INTEGRATION--A PLAN FOR BERKELEY. A REPORT TO BERKELEY BOARD OF EDUCATION.
SULLIVAN, NEIL V.
THE BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA, PLAN FOR DESEGREGATING THE CITY'S ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS IS REVIEWED IN THIS REPORT. THE PLAN DEALS WITH SCHOOL DISTRICT ORGANIZATION, INSTRUCTIONAL NEEDS AND CHANGE, TRANSPORTATION, AND FINANCING REQUIREMENTS. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT THE CITY HAVE FOUR EXPANDED ATTENDANCE ZONES, EACH CONTAINING ONE SCHOOL WITH GRADES ONE THROUGH SIX AND FROM TWO TO FOUR SCHOOLS WITH KINDERGARTEN THROUGH THIRD GRADE. THE PROPOSED INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM WOULD INCLUDE A DEVELOPMENTAL PROGRAM FOR READING, INSERVICE TRAINING OF TEACHERS, TEACHING SPECIALISTS, HETEROGENEOUS GROUPING, SPECIAL HELP FOR UNDERACHIEVING, HANDICAPPED, AND HIGH POTENTIAL STUDENTS, LEARNING LABORATORIES, AND HELP CENTERS STAFFED BY TEACHERS, PSYCHOLOGISTS, AND GUIDANCE PERSONNEL. THERE WOULD BE CONTINUAL DIAGNOSIS AND EVALUATION OF THE PUPILS AND TEACHERS WOULD MAINTAIN HIGH EXPECTATIONS OF THEIR PUPILS' PERFORMANCE. THE SCHOOLS' STARTING TIMES WOULD BE STAGGERED TO MINIMIZE THE TOTAL NUMBER OF NEEDED BUSES. AN ORIENTATION PROGRAM PREPARING STUDENTS FOR THE BUSING WOULD BE CONDUCTED. THE PROGRAM WOULD BE FINANCED THROUGH A TAX ELECTION WHICH WOULD TAKE PLACE BEFORE JULY 1969. PERTINENT QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THE PLAN ARE PRESENTED IN AN APPENDIX. (LB)
