DeClue, James A.; Uchitelle, Susan
Progress made during 1984-85 in the implementation of a student transfer desegregation plan in St. Louis, Missouri, and surrounding counties, is described and evaluated in this report. Focus is on the activities of the two bodies which assumed responsibility for administering the plan, the Voluntary Interdistrict Coordinating Council (VICC) and the Magnet Review Committee (MRC). Following Section 1, an introduction, Section 2 describes various components of the implementation process. These components include the organization of the VICC, the VICC subcommittees, recruitment, enrollment, transportation, finances, staff exchanges, staff development activities, part-time activities, the activities of the MRC, the role of VICC staff working with school districts, data management activities, and research results. Section 3 provides information on student placement, including an analysis of the data on student attendance, retentions, promotions, suspensions, withdrawals, non-public school participation, and special educational services. Finally, Section 4 outlines issues and concerns to be addressed. Five appendices contain information and materials related to VICC membership and subcommittees, recruitment and publicity, the teacher exchange-transfer programs, part-time integrative programs, and procedures to assist students who wish to withdraw from the interdistrict transfer program.
