Galloway, Lawrence L.; And Others
This document presents an evaluation of the 1973-74 ESEA Title 1 funded Issaquah Re-entry Program, providing continuing educational opportunities for divergent youth who had dropped out of regular secondary schools in their area. Program objectives consisted of specifications of problems to be overcome and their possible solutions. Among objectives cited are the identification, contact, and counseling of 50 dropouts, 40 of whom would be enrolled in the program. Percentage requirements for class attendance and satisfactory grades, along with the development of vocational goals for each student are also specified. Two major accomplishments of the program are said to be the specific identification of mathematics skills deficiences for each student and teachers' increased awareness of the needs and requirements for a management system for individualizing instructionl. The lack of clear comprehensive data is said to be due to initial problems with the diagnostic tool, incomplete diagnosis of students, and teachers' lack of understanding concerning the role of management. Among recommendations made are the revision and improvement of diagnostic materials and program record-keeping procedures, along with student involvement in the assessment of his/her learning need. Course descriptions, school schedules, a yearly progress report on program objectives, and student, staff, and parent questionnaires are included. (Author/AM)
