Newport News Secondary Schools Articulation Handbook. A Model.
Newport News Public Schools, VA.
The replacement of a five-year comprehensive high school by schools at the intermediate and senior high levels created problems for students and staff members. A formal program of practices and procedures was developed to assist the students as they move through the organizational breaks that occur between the elementary and intermediate school and the intermediate and senior high. The program design is focused on (1) the communication of pertinent information to students regarding the new school, curriculum, student activities, rules, regulations, and other essential information; and (2) communication between professional staff members at the various organizational levels. The program model includes for each program dimension the purpose, date for implementation, planning and organizational requirements, personnel and their functions, and a narrative description of the actual implementation of the program.
