Focused Flexibility in a Secondary School: A Description and Analysis.
Fennessey, James J.
This paper describes a secondary school in Baltimore, Maryland, and presents a chronological account of how the school developed and implemented course registration and grade reporting procedures. The school aims at (1) providing "focused flexibility" to the students, enabling them to select among quarterly offerings of courses; and (2) effectively monitoring student progress under the quarterly system. With outside aid and within a 2-year period, the school developed and installed workable registration and grade reporting systems that are successfully helping to meet both objectives. (Author/DN)
