The Syracuse City School District alternative high school program outline offers an individualized program of instruction that is occupationally rather than academically oriented. The curriculum is divided into three phases. The first phase covers an intensive development of basic skills. General reading skills, vocabulary, English grammar, and arithmetic are developed until a student reaches an eighth grade proficiency in these areas. In phase 2, the student continues basic skill development and completes curriculum requirements in social studies, English, health, and science. The third phase includes an indepth study of the world of work in both practical and theoretical terms. The student will be exposed to the underlying principle of work, labor unions, government, economics, consumer education, and cultural institutions. It may also include vocational-technical training, on-the-job training, and/or intensive work experience in a specialized skill area. The end goal is successful employability and/or the ability to further the student's training or education. (MW)
