Education for North York in the Eighties.
Virgin, A. E.; Kinzinger, K.
Two related components comprise this document: (1) the outline of a Comprehensive Plan describing a process for educational planning offering a framework for revitalization of the system; and (2) examining options for school consolidation moving North York to a system with a distinct middle-school component consisting of grades 6, 7 and 8. This document uses three major assumptions: future directions and developments are controllable; consolidation is not negative-it's a time for the system's program, morale and communications to be restored; and consolidation should be viewed in conjunction with issues of concern facing the system in the eighties. The report deals with the educational goals, divided into principles and assumptions, curriculum goals, and system goals. With over two hundred recommendations considered, five aims were established with the district's School Board of Trustee's endorsement, and the recommendation to establish a Middle School Development Committee, a Transitional Planning Committee, a Consolidation of Finances Committee, a Secondary School Consolidation Committee, and a Coordinating Committee was enacted.
