Plankenhorn, Andrew; Sylvan, Donna L.
Grant Park Primary School is located in a small neighborhood where most residents are at the poverty level. The primary goals were to provide an educational program which would meet the needs of the pupils and would correct academic deficiencies in reading. This goal was supported by the following: (1) to provide an environment in which each pupil had the opportunity to learn and to learn how to learn; (2) to implement a reading program which met the needs of each pupil; and (3) to involve parents in the school. The Comprehensive Instructional Program focused on diagnostic teaching of reading in grades 1-3. Grant Park has been involved in pilot testing of two units of the Comprehensive Career Education Model Program, a national model under development by the Center for Vocational and Technical Education at the Ohio State University in cooperation with six local education agencies. The Follow Through Program is a national project which has been incorporated in the instructional program at Grant Park, one grade per year over the past four years. The Atlanta Comprehensive Day Care Program is funded under Title IV-A of the 1967 Amendment to the Social Security Act. Grant Park was funded for a preschool unit of 20 and an extended day program of 32. The program was staffed by a lead teacher, group leader, and two aides. (Author/JM)
