Developed for the Duval County Public Schools (Jacksonville, Florida), this manual gives elementary school teachers information on instructional program procedures. Section one is about the reading program and deals with placement procedures and criteria for kindergarten and first grade students, initial placement procedures for grades two-six, students who seem to be placed too high or too low, level progression, and grouping for instruction. The second section, covering the instructional management system's (IMS) pupil progress cards, deals with uses of the cards, uses of dates recorded on the cards, keeping the cards up-to-date, and directions for recording dates on the cards. Procedures for assigning letter grades to report cards are explained in section three, which deals with how grading relates to program objectives, examples of procedures for assigning grades, and criteria for minimum promotional standards. The fourth section includes material from the Florida Primary Education Program (PREP) and deals with promotion from grade three, procedures for determining and certifying mastery of Florida State Assessment Program (FSAP) standards, extension in PREP for remediation of minimum student performance standards, and FSAP summer school procedures. Appendices provide a sample of an initial placement test, a criterion excercise record sheet, a glossary, and a group placement form to facilitate grouping. (CMG)
