Operational Limits. Continuation Education System Development Project. Technical Report 1.6.
Financed by a grant under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, the La Puente Union High School District (California) operates a Continuation Education System Development Project. The first project year (1967-68) has been spent identifying available resources of instructional staff and physical facilities and identifying the present program and resources at Valley High School. Data were collected through questionnaires and interviews; it was found that data sources had to be expanded to include state officials as well as district officials. The instructional staff at Valley High School in 1968-69 will consist of a principal, a counselor, and 11 legally credentialed teachers; funds for staff salaries are obtained from the State of California under the Necessary Small School Funding Act. By September, 1970, a new plant will be ready, financed by a bond issue and by a 25-year loan from the State. Most of the equipment is on loan from the Adult School. The school runs for four hours each day; it meets the state requirements for services. Three types of work experience programs will be offered during 1968-69; and there are two methods of achieving credit for work -- completion of contracts or completion of a net amount of productive hours.
