An Interim Program offers high school students the opportunity to expand their outlook on education, school function, and community resources through a two-week series of courses between semesters. The courses are grouped under two headings: Interim Course Offerings (Academic and Avocational) and Career Research Laboratory Program. The mini-courses vary in length from 45 minutes to three hours, each student taking a minimum of 4 1/2 hours per day. Courses are taught by teachers, students, administrators, and community people. Remedial courses are also offered. The Career Research Laboratory Program is open to seniors who spend the twoo weeks working, on a one-to-one basis, with a member of an occupation of their choice. Each student is observed once a week by a staff member; participants complete a diary-type report at the end of the experience. The program development process involved teachers, students, and parents. Informal and formal evaluations indicate a secure future for the program. Two appendices explain the interim pre-registration procedures, course offerings, and registration forms. (Relevant ERIC documents and other information pertinent to the program conclude the profile.) (Author/KSM)
