Mid-Term Report on Partners Program.
Raughton, Jim L.; And Others
The Partners Program operates through a partnership of the Colorado Community College and Occupational Education System, the Denver Public Schools, and the Colorado Minority Engineering Association to guide minority high school students into career tracks that include a college option. Denver is a particularly suitable location for the Partners Program in that the area has a large concentration of Hispanic, Black, and American Indian students; has one of the most serious minority dropout rates in Colorado; and can offer a variety of college programs locally through the Community College of Denver (CCD). The organization and implementation of the Partners Program involved the formation of an advisory board, the development of procedures manuals, the selection of Partners Advisors at four participating high schools, the selection of 14 seniors to participate in the project, and the provision of orientation and support to the students' families. The Partners students participated in several activities, including campus visits to local community colleges, meetings with college counselors regarding financial aid, presentations by industry representatives, and regular meetings with their advisors. In cooperation with the CCD, all students were offered an intensive college preparation program during the summer prior to their freshman year. (ALB)
