Developing Schools of Choice To Increase Learning Opportunities for Elementary School Children.
Rosado, Robert J.
A program implemented in a school district in central New Jersey was designed to: (1) create at least four magnet school options for elementary school children; (2) reduce the suspension rate at the elementary level; (3) reduce the student referral rate for special education; (4) decrease the number of students requiring basic skills services; and (5) develop a new means of assessing kindergarten students. Over a 10-month period, magnet programs were developed, parents surveyed, and in-service training provided. Programs in science and technology; fine, visual and performing arts; and international studies; and two programs referred to as "Early Childhood" and "An Academy," were developed. Preliminary evaluations of the project showed that its objectives were met. As a result, the project will be expanded to the middle school level. (HOD)
