A Proposal for Undergraduate Staffing of Alternative Schools.
This proposal is a plan to involve undergraduate participation in major educational issues which would be constructive for the development of an alternative school program. The summer period is envisioned as the crucial development period for the undergraduates and the design phase for the alternative school. In September, leadership training groups could begin to implement the alternative school by selecting sites, experiences, staff, and students according to criteria exacted and established during the summer. A staff training group will develop a model orientation/staff training program that could be applied to other evolving alternative schools. A possible type of operational structure for the alternative school would be vertical age grouping. This structure has the following four age divisions: (a) members of the program ages five through eight, (b) those individual ages nine through thirteen, (c) those from the age and grade range of the traditional high school, and (d) the leadership training team and other resource personnel. Each family will involve equal or near equal numbers of groups a, b, and c, and at least three participants from group d. Evaluation of the program will consist of personal assessments and a continuing effort to respond to proposals and appraisals with programmatic changes. (RC)
