Effective Instruction: A Report on the Four-Quarter Plan of Organization.
Atlanta Public Schools, GA.
With the beginning of the 1968-69 school term, the Atlanta Public Schools implemented the four-quarter plan for reorganization of the secondary school curriculum. The year is divided into four quarters of approximately the same length. Pupils were compelled to attend the first three quarters of the 1968-69 term. Fourth quarter attendance is optional. Pupils choosing to attend the fourth quarter may accelerate, add enrichment courses, or take remedial work. A pupil attending the fourth quarter may choose which three of the next four quarters he wishes to attend, or may attend all four quarters. The financing of the fourth quarter is yet to be solved but it is hoped that State aid will be received. Revision and restructuring of the curriculum is in a developmental stage which will eventually result in individualized instruction. A description of the new program and reports to parents and pupils concerning the four-quarter instructional program are contained in appendices. (HW)
