Texas Small Schools Project, 1969.
Texas Small Schools Project, Austin.
An historical overview of the Texas Small Schools Project (TSSP) from 1960 to 1969 precedes a discussion of statewide, regional, and school activities conducted with TSSP assistance: summer workshops, the testing program, and TSSP staff visitation at the statewide level; inservice training, talented-youth seminars, and health careers programs at the regional level; and multiple classes, flexible schedules, programmed instruction, student aides, and nongraded elementary classes at the school level. In addition, the TSSP's 119 member schools (1-12) are collectively described, and the 20 regions are delineated (their boundaries coincide with those of Texas' 20 Education Service Centers). A conclusion presents evaluations and recommendations for the TSSP, and an appendix contains 3 charts on standardized test results for 7th, 9th, and 11th graders in the TSSP schools compared to results from students in the Texas schools generally. Related documents are ED 019 149, ED 033 807, and ED 036 350. (BO)
