Jones Center Vocational/Academic Program (JCVA).
This document provides information on the Jones Center Vocational/Academic Program of the Granite School District (Utah), the purpose of which is to maintain or reintegrate students who are potential high school dropouts or dropouts into appropriate educational alternatives. Its mission statement is followed by a list of program components, including customization to individual needs, highly structured academics, linkage with postsecondary and trade schools and outside agencies, and training in life, social, and problem-solving skills. The rationale and need for such a program is discussed. An outline states the program purpose as: (1) the reintegration of special education high school dropouts into their neighborhood high school; (2) identification of appropriate educational alternatives within the district or community, such as other educational programs or job training program; or (3) development of a program at the Jones Center tailored for high school students at risk whose needs would not be met by the other two options. These steps are listed: district office pupil service department notification of dropouts or potential dropouts; contact with student and parents and placement of student in one of the above options; and district level meeting, if necessary, to identify a program. Data to be presented to those involved with the students' programs are outlined. (YLB)
