COVERT PROJECT, YEAR 1.
KLEIN, GENEVIEVE; AND OTHERS
A TUCSON EDUCATIONAL PROJECT, CALLED COVERT (CHILDREN OFFERED VITAL EDUCATIONAL RETRAINING AND THERAPY), HAS BEEN PROPOSED TO IMPROVE THE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY OF EMOTIONALLY DISTURBED CHILDREN. SURVEYS INDICATE THAT FROM 5 TO 14 PERCENT OF TUCSON'S SCHOOL CHILDREN HAVE EMOTIONAL-BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS WHICH INTERFERE WITH THEIR LEARNING ACHIEVEMENT IN REGULAR SCHOOL SURROUNDINGS. THIS PROJECT INTENDS TO PLACE THESE DISTURBED CHILDREN IN A SEPARATE, MORE THERAPEUTIC SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH EDUCATORS AND CLINICIANS CAN WORK TOGETHER TO HELP CORRECT THE DISTURBED CHILDREN'S SPECIAL PROBLEMS. THE EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY OF THIS SPECIAL SCHOOL WILL NOT VARY ESSENTIALLY FROM THAT OF REGULAR SCHOOLS, EXCEPT THAT THERE WILL BE MORE INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION AND MORE FLEXIBILITY IN THE CURRICULUM. MOST OF THE CHILDREN QUALIFYING FOR THE COVERT SCHOOL WILL BE IDENTIFIED IN AND TRANSFERRED FROM THE REGULAR SCHOOL SYSTEM. THE TEACHING STRUCTURE OF THE COVERT SCHOOL WILL BE TEAM-ORIENTED SO THAT INTERACTION AND CONSULTATION BETWEEN THE ENTIRE STAFF CAN BEST BE USED TO EFFECT THE PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT, NAMELY, TO DIAGNOSE AND TREAT EACH CHILD'S EMOTIONAL- BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS. THIS DOCUMENT DESCRIBES IN DETAIL THE ANTICIPATED ORGANIZATIONAL SCHEME OF THE WHOLE COVERT PROJECT, INCLUDING (1) THE TEACHER'S ROLE, OBJECTIVES, AND PURPOSES, (2) THE TYPE OF PERSONNEL TO BE USED, (3) THE 6 EDUCATIONAL APPROACHES TO BE IMPLEMENTED, INCLUDING A RESIDENT SCHOOL AND A DAY SCHOOL, AND (4) SUGGESTIONS FOR GOOD CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT.
