Report of the High School Articulation Project.
Cohen, Mary; Shapiro, Richard
The administrative process related to the transition of students from intermediate or junior high school is called articulation. Articulation has several stages: identifying student interests, needs and abilities; getting information to students and parents; helping students apply to the school of their choice; informing students and parents of rejections and acceptances; checking and forwarding student records; and designing students' individual programs for the first term of high school. The primary objectives of this study of articulation in the New York City Public Schools are: (1) to identify articulation strengths and problems; and (2) to make recommednations for improving the articulation process. A major finding of this study is that many parents, students and staff are dissatisfied with articulation practices. Many feel that the process is poorly managed and unnecessarily complex. It is felt that some problems of articulation stem from racial tensions and others from the immense size of the school system and its rigid bureaucratic structure. Data analysis identified specific elements of articulation that need improvement and highlighted those features of the school system that impede the articulation process. (RLV)
