A PROPOSAL FOR A MODIFIED JOB CORPS PROGRAM TO ACCOMODATE HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUTS OR POTENTIAL DROPOUTS IN THE SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT--PROJECT INTERCHANGE. REVISION.
Seattle Public Schools, WA.
THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES AN INSTRUCTIONAL-VOCATIONAL PROGRAM FOR ABOUT 50 TEENAGE MALE STUDENTS WHO ARE EITHER LOW ACHIEVERS OR ACTUAL DROPOUTS. THE CHIEF PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM IS TO ASSIST THESE STUDENTS TO COMPLETE THEIR EDUCATION OR TO BE MEANINGFULLY EMPLOYED. IN ADDITION TO RECEIVING INSTRUCTION IN READING, MATHEMATICS, VOCATIONAL, AND SOCIAL SKILLS, STUDENTS WILL BE PROVIDED WITH AN OPPORTUNITY FOR RELEVANT PART-TIME EMPLOYMENT. SCHEDULING, SUBJECT SELECTION, AND TEACHING TECHNIQUES WILL BE FLEXIBLE IN ORDER TO ACCOMMODATE THE INDIVIDUAL STUDENT. THOSE STUDENTS DEFICIENT IN ONLY CERTAIN CURRICULAR AREAS MAY RECEIVE REMEDIAL INSTRUCTION AT THE JOB CORPS CENTER WHERE THE PROGRAM WILL BE CONDUCTED WHILE CONTINUING TO ATTEND THEIR REGULAR PUBLIC SCHOOL. IN ALL PHASES OF THE PROGRAM COMPLETE EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY AND TREATMENT WILL BE ENFORCED. ON-THE-JOB TRAINING OF JOB CORPS GRADUATES AS EDUCATIONAL PARAPROFESSIONALS AND INSERVICE TRAINING OF TEACHERS ARE OTHER PROPOSED FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM. PROVISIONS WILL BE MADE FOR AN EXCHANGE OF SERVICES, IDEAS, AND EVALUATIVE RESEARCH BETWEEN THE SEATTLE SCHOOL DISTRICT, THE NATIONAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION, AND THE OFFICE OF ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY.
