CONTINUOUS PROGRESS EDUCATION IN THE SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS, THE PROPOSED SOUTHEAST EDUCATION CENTER. DOCUMENTATION.
Seattle Public Schools, WA. Task Force on Continuous Progress Education.
THIS REPORT DESCRIBES A PROPOSED CONTINUOUS PROGRESS EDUCATIONAL CENTER WITH AN EXPECTED ENROLLMENT OF ABOUT 3,500 RACIALLY MIXED PUPILS AT ALL GRADE LEVELS. (A PRESCHOOL GROUP MAY BE ADDED, THUS RAISING THE TOTAL ENROLLMENT.) NO MORE THAN 50 PERCENT OF THE STUDENTS WILL BE NONWHITE AND NO SINGLE MINORITY GROUP (NEGRO, ORIENTAL, FILIPINO, OR AMERICAN INDIAN) WILL CONSTITUTE MORE THAN 33 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL ENROLLMENT. EACH STUDENT WILL RECEIVE INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION AND WILL PROGRESS AT HIS OWN RATE WITHIN AN INDIVIDUALLY DESIGNED PROGRAM OF STUDY. THE ARRANGEMENT OF SPACES AND FACILITIES IN THE CENTER WILL PROVIDE MAXIMUM FLEXIBILITY IN EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMING. IN GENERAL PUPILS WILL BE GROUPED ACCORDING TO PERFORMANCE CRITERIA. ALTHOUGH LANGUAGE ARTS AND MATHEMATICS WILL BE EMPHASIZED, SCIENCE, SOCIAL STUDIES, FINE AND PRACTICAL ARTS, OCCUPATIONAL ORIENTATION, AND WORK EXPERIENCE WILL ALSO BE OFFERED. AS WELL AS A REGULAR CONTINUOUS PROGRESS CURRICULUM, LEARNING PACKETS WITH BUILT-IN BEHAVIORAL OBJECTIVES, PRETESTS, SELF-TESTS, AND POSTTESTS WILL BE USED. THE TEACHER'S ROLE WILL BE ONE OF TEAM PARTNER, ACADEMIC SPECIALIST, AND GENERAL EDUCATOR. IT IS ALSO EXPECTED THAT PARENTS AND OTHER COMMUNITY RESIDENTS WILL BE INVOLVED IN THE CENTER'S OPERATION. STANDARDIZED APTITUDE AND ACHIEVEMENT TESTS AND OTHER TRADITIONAL MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENTS WILL BE USED TO EVALUATE THE CENTER'S ACTIVITIES, A COST EFFECTIVENESS TECHNIQUE FOR EVALUATION AND EXPERIMENTATION WILL BE USED TO ASSESS THE VALUE OF THE PROGRAM. AS PART OF THE GENERAL RESEARCH DESIGN, AN INFORMATION SYSTEM WILL DISSEMINATE RELEVANT PROGRAM INFORMATION TO STAFF MEMBERS THROUGHOUT THE CENTER. (LB)
