In this report, the plan for fulfilling the commitment of the Chicago Board of Education to increase the quality of educational opportunities for all students in desegregated settings is described. The plan, which is designed to be realized by the 1982-83 school year, is divided into three parts: (1) district programs, educational initiatives to be undertaken by each district to fulfill the need for basic skills education; (2) system programs, educational initiatives that will enroll students from all parts of the city, preschool through high school, in alternative educational programs that improve basic skills and develop special talents; (3) administrative actions, initiatives that give students the opportunity to enroll in summer school. The purpose, objectives, eligibility, location, schedule, implementation, and cost of activities to be implemented under each program are explained. Numerous charts illustrate the projections. Areas stressed in the plan are bilingual education, basic skills, advanced placement, career development, technical education, language and creative arts, and preschool education. (WI)
