Evaluation of the Instructional Program, Strongsville, Ohio.
An intensive study of the K-12 instructional program of the Strongsville, Ohio, City School District was conducted during the 1974-1975 school year by the Educational Research Council of America. Survey teams gathered data and developed recommendations and suggestions for strengthening each subject area within the instruction program. The mental health program and pupil personnel services were also examined, and recommendations and suggestions for improvement were offered. Results of the analyses showed that Strongsville's instructional program provided its children with an adequate school career. The Strongsville school system, challenged with the problems of a growing suburban school district, needs to concern itself with accommodation to change and planning of revision so that its instructional program can keep pace with its growth as well as educational innovation. Among the elementary schools, the science and social science programs were considered good. The junior high schools' programs in languages, occupational education, science and social science programs were also good, and the services rendered by the library were excellent. At the high school, the mathematics program was rated as excellent, and the language arts and social science programs had the potential for excellence with some revision. The physical education and health programs, however, were limited at all levels. The rest of the subject area programs ranged from fair to good. Two hundred and twenty-eight specific recommendations and suggestions were made for improving Strongsville's curriculum. (RC)
