Handbook on Tentative Standards and Procedures for the Registration of Secondary Schools. 1979-80 Field Trial Edition.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This handbook contains the tentative secondary school registration standards and procedures approved by the New York State Board of Regents for the 1979-80 school year. It explains the program providing for the registration (or accreditation) of New York schools and outlines the steps that will make up the registration procedure. Most of the publication consists of the guide for the review of secondary school programs. Part 1 of the guide allows both the secondary school and the state education department to evaluate secondary school educational practices. In workbook form, it asks for information about the school concerning such areas as achievement, curriculum and instruction, school facilities, and student supervision. Part 2 of the guide allows the school and the education department to determine to what extent the secondary school meets the requirements established by relevant New York laws and directives. Also in workbook form, this portion of the guide concerns such areas as attendance, instructional program, handicapped children, and school libraries. The standards and procedures in this book are tentative and will be field tested until the fall of 1980 when final standards and procedures will be adopted. A 10-page glossary of terms used in the guide is included. (Author/JM)
