Five areas of emphasis are offered: (1) administrative and counseling efforts; (2) teaching faculty and curriculum efforts; (3) clubs and extracurricular activity efforts; (4) schoolwide efforts; and (5) inservice efforts. The bulk of the document presents descriptions of activities planned for each of the above areas. The teaching and curriculum section offers plans for each academic area.
