Kenston Aerospace: Title III ESEA Project.
Kenston Local School District, Chagrin Falls, OH.
The objectives of a three-year comprehensive aerospace education program at Kenston High School, Chagrin Falls, Ohio, funded under Title III ESEA, were to provide marketable skills for non-College-bound students as well as counseling for the student planning on college or technical school education in the aviation field. Students also were taught skills of other disciplines such as math, geography, cartography, and science under real job-training conditions. The entire three-year program in aerospace education included three year-long courses, totaling three units of high school credit and was made available to all interested tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grade students. The program was supplemented with speakers, audio-visuals, and field trips; students in each course were required to do an independent study project. An evaluation of the project reflects aviation student profiles, class attendance, course interest, future vocational goals of students, and interest-aptitude survey. Other aspects covered are the impact of Title III, cooperating agencies, information dissemination, and costs. More than half of this document is devoted to appendixes describing student aviation projects and reports, curriculum guides of courses, students survey, photographs, evaluation samples (OVIS, Strong, and GATB), and phase-in report.
