Implementation, Operation, and Management of a Non-Time Based School.
Yarborough, L. Everett; Fox, Henry C.
The Florida Department of Education has adopted state-wide goals and performance objectives which can ultimately serve as the basis of a non-time based school. In such a system, student performance will be the measure of an individual's success, as opposed to merely the number of years spent in the classroom; additional characteristics will include year-round operation, individualized learning, continuous evaluation, flexible space, differentiated staffing, non-traditional grading and community involvement. Students and parents will set goals and plan programs; these will consist of learning segments comprised of clusters of performance objectives. Computer-managed instructional systems will assist students in registering and in undergoing pre-evaluation, learning experiences and post-evaluation. Lastly, classroom organization and teacher and administrator roles will be greatly altered to allow individuals to work at their own paces and to relate to educators as learning aids and consultants.
