Supervised Independent Study Program. Annual Report (July through June 1972).
Bucks County Public Schools, Doylestown, PA.
The purpose of this first annual report is to provide the sponsoring bureau of this Supervised Independent Study Program and secondary school staffs with a comprehensive description of program activities for the fiscal year 1972 together with the intended program developments for the fiscal year 1973. Statistical data and case studies are presented to support the conclusion that this program in vocational education has made significant strides in combating Bucks County's dropout problems at the secondary level. A staff of two full-time and four part-time personnel have counseled, tested, and tutored students by preparing them for the GED test and by offering competently written home vocational correspondence courses. By participating in this program, dropouts have raised their employment chances. Related programs include vocational training courses for prisoners, juvenile delinquents, the handicapped, and for drug addicts. Over 300 young people have been aided by the Supervised Independent Study Program. Sample program materials, counseling guidelines, and a map of Bucks County showing the dropout distribution are provided. (Author/AG)
