Final Project Report for Title III, E. S. E. A.--Project Breakthrough, Number 1146, 1971-72.
Tamalpais Union High School District, Larkspur, CA.
Project Breakthrough, funded under Title III of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, was conceived to service the Marin City black students in the Tamalpais High School District. This segment numbers about 220 students. The specific objectives were: (1) to significantly increase the black student's confidence in his ability to succeed in school as a means of personal and social growth and achievement; and (2) to provide black community environmental support for the student on his part to educational success by development within the black community an attitude which understands, values, supports, and participates in the total schooling process. The program, since its inception, has been student oriented. Therefore, each staff member had as his prime responsibilities the development of the student in his actual academic and social endeavors. Initially, the staff had to meet with district personnel to gain an understanding of their respective jobs and functions. The second phase involved direct work with students. Counseling and testing sessions were established. Tutorial sessions were started. A stronger black students group was established. Students were encouraged to use the community office as an educational and vocational resource center. In addition, all student groups, large or small, meet there with the staff, providing guidance whenever needed. Field trips, above and beyond those for a particular academic class, were started.
