This report describes a desegregation/integration plan implemented in four junior high schools in the Elkhart, Indiana school district. The first section details the history, design, and objectives of the project. The second section deals with data concerning the achievement of project objectives as obtained by a locally developed and validated instrument. Student reaction is handled in section three, which covers behavior and attitudes, extracurricular activities, and school-parent communication. The following section presents results of findings about student attitudes in table format accompanied by discussion. Teacher evaluation of inservice activities is included in section five, which examines the effectiveness of system-wide inservice programs. Section six presents the results of a multicultural needs assessment. Reactions from an external perspective are given in section seven. The last section provides conclusions and recommendations. Six appendices include evaluation instruments used by the project. (Author/ML)
