Student Educational Radio: Village Extension. Project S.E.R.V.E.
Dillingham City School District, AK.
Dillingham High School, through Project SERVE (Student Education Radio: Village Extension), intends to bring 25 rural schools and villages in the Bristol Bay area of Alaska together utilizing educational radio. The objectives of the three-year project are to: (1) increase the number of graduating students choosing broadcasting as a vocation by 100%; (2) increase scores on standardized language achievement exams; and (3) to provide 75% of the target population with the opportunity to participate in a live and taped broadcast program. Students will work directly with language arts instructors and persons in media to improve language skills. Professionally-made taped broadcasts will be compared with local student efforts. During the second and third year of the program, an attempt will be made to bring into the village several professional radio personalities for workshops with students. During the third year, the program will be expanded to include a mobile broadcasting unit which will travel to all the villages in the area for a one to two week session of daily broadcasts, live from the elementary State-Operated Schools. Program material will be prepared by the local villages and school students. (WCM)
