Non-Graded Primary Task Force Report.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
As one in a series of reports by 10 task forces that responded to the Oregon Education Act for the 21st Century and explored the restructuring of the Oregon education system, this report presents recommendations of the Non-Graded Primary Task Force. The report describes the feasibility of implementing non-graded primary programs in all school districts. These programs would include strategies for prevention of students' failure and early intervention for students requiring special assistance. The report also recommends a funding formula and an implementation process that recognizes the need for flexible models to meet local needs. Included in the report are: (1) procedures the task force followed to prepare its recommendations; (2) a foundation for using the best educational practices, based on current research, for child development and learning in children in kindergarten through third grade; and (3) recommendations to the Oregon State Board of Education based on this foundation. Appendices include a bibliography of 14 references; definitions of terms; explanations of guiding principles of, and recommended best practices to foster, child development; and materials that concern assessment practices.
