Blayton, Ethel J.; Ryals, Joe
The staff at Forrest School developed the following program goals: (1) activities which will encourage pupil participation in planning the learning activities; (2) opportunities for pupils to develop self-expression and verbal communication with adults and peers; (3) activities designed to insure some degree of success; (4) encouragement and immediate reinforcement following completion of assigned tasks; (5) highly individualized instructional activities designed to correct specific weaknesses in the area of reading; and (6) parental support in the form of parental involvement in programs designed to complement the school's effort. The school was determined eligible for Title I, Elementary Secondary Education Act services. These services included one lead teacher, one certified teacher, and two educational aides. In addition to the staff, funds were also used for purchasing reading materials. One of the two aides was also a participant in the Career Opportunities Program. Initially, the Comprehensive Instructional Program (CIP) was concerned with the reading achievement of pupils in elementary schools. The primary services provided to the schools consisted of materials and supplies, along with the CIP coordinator. The program was expanded to include reading for grades 1-3 and math for all grades in the elementary schools. (Author/JM)
