Consideration of Skill Development in the EPDA Summer Training Sessions.
English, Fenwick W.; Zaharis, James K.
In December of 1970, teachers in the Mesa Public Schools will design the procedures by which they contract with the Mesa School to produce certain student outcomes for a given unit of study in the spring. These will be specified in a "contract" written by the school board. Teams will "bid" on the contract, submitting dollar estimates of all cost variables relating to the successful completion of the contract. Key variables in the contracting process may include the following: time; number and kind of educational personnel to be used; materials, supplies, and equipment; building costs; and evaluation. Negotiations are primarily concerned with equating means to projected outcomes. In all cases, costs are related to student outcomes. Teachers will need to be trained during the summer in how to negotiate with the board, specify student outcomes, package curriculum to meet the unit objectives, and assess student learning along required dimensions.
