The mission of Project SWEP (Skyline Wide Educational Plan) was to conceptualize the secondary school of the years 1980-2000 and to develop a viable working model of such schooling. The staff first sought a comprehensive description of the society of the 1980s and beyond, with emphasis on how education might be impacted by various facets of that future society. From this description of society, a graphic model of future schooling evolved. This SWEP model was then applied to the creation of a hypothetical secondary school serving the needs of special students within the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. This application provided a test of the model's logic, of its planning specifications, and of its possible utility as a guide for future planners within the metroplex as well as across the nation. This application of the model to an imaginary schooling site was assigned the acronym SWEP-H and was envisioned as having characteristics related to such areas as learning environments, instructional techniques and programs, student choices, scheduling systems, societal changes, staff participation, staffing arrangements, and continuous learning.
