The School-Community Coordinating Team. Progress Report, September 1960-June 1964.
Philadelphia Public Schools, PA.
This report describes a compensatory education program in six elementary schools and one junior high school in a racially mixed area of Philadelphia. Current and additional personnel were used, and existing class size and physical plant were maintained. The program provided a community coordinator in each school to work with parents, a bilingual coordinator for the Spanish-speaking community, and language arts and arithmetic consultants and master teachers at each site. As part of its activities, it initiated homogeneous groupings, extended school time, and teacher retraining. The report presents standardized test data indicating that academic achievement was stimulated, retardation reduced, and behavior and attitudes improved. An appendix contains an outline of the procedure used to arrive at a standard-score rating and samples of inventories, questionnaires, and interviewing guides. (NH)
