Evaluation Report for "Operation RISE" (Recreation-Instruction-Service-Enrichment) in the City of Medford, Massachusetts.
Medford Public Schools, MA.
Operation RISE (Recreation-Instruction-Service-Enrichment) was an ESEA Title I Program comprised of services to 660 (from grades 11-12) educationally disadvantaged elementary and secondary school students of Medford, Massachusetts during a six-week period in the summer of 1969. In this period each student was given remedial instruction in the areas of his previously assessed needs. Specifically, field trips to local places of educational renown and to industrial sites and other places of special interest were fostered. The specific objectives of the project included the following: provision of culturally enriching experiences that the disadvantaged could not afford; provision of remedial instruction at no cost to the student; provision of meaningful summer experiences toward personal growth of the student; encouragement of active family participation in the child's school experience; establishment of positive health attitudes; encouragement of children with special interests and talents to pursue their inclinations; provision of teachers with inservice experience in dealing with this type of student; encouragement of positive mental attitudes toward school; and, establishment of vocational on-the-job training for high school students.
