Project ORDER: Organization for Responsibility, Dependability, Education and Reality.
North Forest Independent School District, Houston, TX.
Although it deals with both years of the program, this report is primarily concerned with the second year of Project ORDER. The program's objectives were to improve the general school atmosphere, including teacher, student, and parent attitudes toward the school; to show continued significant improvement in pupil behavior; and to substantially improve teaching and learning experiences and achievements. The program was implemented by four distinctive and overlapping strategies--the use of the cluster approach to functional control; the use of extensive inservice education to enable teachers to apply various methods for teaching affective education; the addition of personnel; and the provision of consultants for leadership and assistance in a thorough restudy and revision of the curriculum. In the second year of the project, emphasis was placed on dissemination and replication. This report consists of a summary of the program's objectives and activities and of the evaluation data that has been collected and analyzed during the year. The three basic system objectives are examined and then the objectives, activities, and achievements of the program's subsystems--curriculum, facilities, public relations, extracurricular activities, student body organization, faculty and staff, administration, and class schedule--are presented. Appendixes contain related information. (Author/IRT)
