Neglected or Delinquent Transition Services in Oklahoma 1982-83. Final Report.
Oklahoma City Public School System, OK.; Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
This report describes a special, 1-year federally funded project of the Oklahoma State Department of Education and the Oklahoma City Public schools, which operated to facilitate the transition of neglected or delinquent youths from state operated institutions to locally operated educational programs. The problems specific to youths in transition from Oklahoma's six state institutions for the neglected or delinquent are detailed in the first section, along with a discussion of the planning phase of the program, characteristics of the target population, and the objectives of the project. A description of the operation of the program is presented focusing on: special program features; site, personnel, and participant selection; the extent of program services; and participant training. The results of the program are discussed in relation to participation count, dropouts, attendance, achievement, attitudes and goals, cost, and slippage. Conclusions about the effectiveness of the program and recommendations to potential practitioners working with the same clientele complete the document. (BL)
