Summer Program for Junior High School and Intermediate School Pupils.
Fox, David J.; And Others
The summer program for junior high and intermediate school pupils in 1969, supported by the State Urban Education Aid Program in New York, offered a six-week remediation and enrichment program for public and non-public school pupils. The program included an Academy in the Creative Arts, an Institute in Mathematics and Science, a school for the Humanities, and 11 summer junior high schools that offered remediation and enrichment as well as repetition of previously failed courses for pupils. The implementation of these objectives was facilitated by 11 junior high and intermediate schools offering a basic program: two in Manhattan, three in the Bronx, and six in Brooklyn; and by three specialized schools in Manhattan. Each of the 11 schools was to service approximately 300 to 1,000 students per school and was required to provide instruction for pupils who were retarded in reading and mathematics; provide intensive, small group instruction for pupils who had failed in one or more academic subjects during the school year; provide enrichment through non-credit, non-academic courses in industrial arts, music, typewriting, and library services; provide enrichment in literature through non-credit instruction for pupils reading on or above grade level; and to teach English as a Second Language to foreign-born and non-English speaking children.
