Diversified Satellite Occupations Program. Interim Report.
Call, John Reed
This interim report, covering the period of September 1970 to June 1971, describes a program conducted for elementary, junior high, and senior high grades. The elementary program was designed to help students develop an understanding of occupational competence. The prevention of dropouts and individualizing instruction were concerns of the junior high program. For senior high students, dropout prevention, re-enlistment of prior dropouts, and providing occupational experience and information were the major concerns. Two of the centers made arrangements for senior high students to gain work experience, with pay, as teacher's aides during a part of the school day. Two of the junior highs showed positive results during the first year through a close relationship between teacher and students, and it was decided to curtail expenditures in the elementary area for the 1971-72 year. An expansion of the junior and senior high programs is planned. (GEB)
