The One Hundred Eleventh Street Elementary School of the Los Angeles Unified School District, located in the heart of the black community of Watts, attracts visitors from other schools and school districts throughout the nation. The instructional program at 111th Street School is completely ungraded, with teachers, resource personnel, and supporting aides and volunteers organized into two units. The Early Childhood unit consists of four teams and serves children who would normally be in grades K-3. The Upper Age Group serves children who would normally be in grades 4-6. Students are freely transferred between the units based on their abilities. The environment of the 111th Street School is dynamic. Frequent faculty workshops, team meetings, and staff development activities result in improved procedures for managing the ungraded instructional program and the general operation of the school. The staff at the 111th Street School have supplemented and modified the basic instructional design as necessary to accomplish the objectives of the school and the Los Angeles Unified School District. Since 111th Street is a Title I school, receiving funds under the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, they have received the support of Title I administrative staff and from the Compensatory Education Activity Support Unit, Program Development. Parents take pride in the 111th Street School and actively participate in the instructional program and overall school operation. (Author/JM)
