Duval County Follow Through Final Evaluation Report, 1981-1982.
Wagoner, Valerie J.
Follow Through is an early childhood program (kindergarten through third grade) established in 1967. The intent of the program is to sustain and expand on the gains made by children in Head Start or similar preschool programs. It is an educational program with a strong emphasis on community and parental involvement, as well as comprehensive services designed to meet the total needs of each child. The uniqueness of the program lies in its basic philosophy that a child's education is not limited to the school classroom but is related to many factors in a child's life. Based on the Parent Education Follow Through Model sponsored by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the Jacksonville program is located in 5 school sites (21 classrooms) and services approximately 550 children and their families. The components of the project include (1) administration, (2) instructional activities, (3) parent activities, (4) medical/dental services and health education, (5) nutrition, (6) social services, (7) psychological services, (8) staff and career development, and (9) evaluation. Result charts for the principal, teacher, parent educator, and parent surveys are included. (Author/PN)
