A Re-Entry Program for Students Who Have Been Suspended or Expelled from School.
The 1983-84 school year marks the second year of the Seattle Public Schools' operation of a re-entry program for students who are otherwise likely to be lost in the educational system. The program is designed to serve students in Grades 7-12 who have been suspended or expelled from the regular middle or high school program during 1983-84. To prepare students for return to a regular academic environment, the objectives for the re-entry program focus on student behavior rather than academics. An outreach/intake services unit is included to reduce the work burden of the regular program staff. Program operation is geared to accommodate a student body that gradually increases in size throughout the course of a semester, and students are assigned to one of three re-entry program sites, according to residence address. Following the description of the program's operation, the program evaluation design is presented. And finally, two questionnaires are appended: "Teachers' Rating of Student at Entrance," and "Student Intake/Entrance." (KH)
