Evaluation of the First Year of the Integrated Model at Westwood Elementary School.
The integrated model at Westwood Secondary School (Ontario) involves the combination in a single school of vocational programs and regular secondary school programs. The model was implemented in fall 1981 with the entry of vocational students in grades 9 and 10 and will be phased in until all 4 years of vocational programming are offered. Data for the evaluation, collected in spring 1982, include surveys of parents and teaching and support staff; interviews with department heads and groups of students; and reviews of school records in such areas as course offerings, extracurricular participation, course integration, timetable individualization, career orientation opportunities, attendance and attrition rates, and final grades. Five questions form the basis both for the evaluation design and for the structure of this report. They concern how the model has affected: (1) the degree of student integration, both academically and socially; (2) the individualization of programs; (3) the number of course offerings; (4) career orientation; and (5) the satisfaction of students, staff, and parents with the program.
