Princeton's Formula for Academic Excellence.
Denoyer, Richard A.
Princeton City School District Staff and parents created a plan for monitoring student achievement. Each group--teachers, counselors, coaches and club sponsors, parents, students, and administrators--was given responsibilities; parents, for example, were asked to emphasize learning's importance in the home. Biweekly computer printouts note students' areas of study and student problems to help staff outside the classroom assist students with difficulties inside. The junior high plan focuses upon student/teacher teams and involves a computer listing of students checked by teachers and passed to "resource" persons. At intervals parents are informed of students' problems and prgress. The high school plan revolves around biweekly and interim progress reports containing teachers' assessments for parents and counselors; students rated deficient are to be counseled by several staff members. That the young program is successful is shown in students' heightened level of academic concern and counselors' use of the biweekly reports to help students before it is too late. (KS)
