Profile of an Arizona Community High School. An ESEA Title III Project.
Phoenix Union High School District, AZ.
A community school funded by ESEA Title III and the Mott Foundation from 1970 through August 1973 is described in the booklet. Serving as the vehicle to bring about greater community involvement and participation, the school provides a program of education for people of all ages by utilizing the facilities and programs of the public school and the community. The majority of the 1800 students per week live in south Phoenix, and reflect the ethnic and racial balance of the community. Four programs meet the needs of people by offering adult education and G. E. D. preparation and testing programs, college and university extension courses, informal general interest activities, and community forums. A full time director and secretary and 90 part-time personnel consisting of certified instructors, agency people, community residents, and supplementary personnel comprise the school staff. The overall operation of the school is formally evaluated once a year focusing on how well the goals and objectives are carried out, and informally evaluated throughout the year. Two significant changes since the project first began center on the use of the school facilities and increase in the number of people who are attending activities at the school. (SJM)
