Chapter 1: Creating Opportunities for Success through Replacement Services. Chapter 1 Replacement Class Collaborative Teaming and Intensive Teaching Time. A Model for Student Success in Newark City Schools.
This collection of documents describes the Chapter 1 programs of the Newark (Ohio) City Schools and presents a model for programs to increase student success. Newark is a midsized city district with 1 high school, 3 middle schools, and 12 elementary schools, 7 of which receive Chapter 1 services. Collaborative efforts include replacement classes. Replacement classes do not involve just giving the responsibility for all the low achievers to the Chapter 1 teacher or simply serving more students. Instead, it is intended to bring teachers together to develop the most effective way to meet the needs of all the students. A replacement project provides Chapter 1 service for more than 25 percent of the time a child would, in the absence of Chapter 1 funds, receive classroom instructional service. The model for increasing Chapter 1 student success outlines plans for 5 years. A comparison of the replacement model and traditional models highlights its structure and services and clearly outlines teacher responsibilities. A typical daily schedule illustrates the replacement plan in action. Other attachments include a chart for flexible grouping, an illustration of intensive teaching time, benchmarks for language arts and mathematics, some sample record sheets, and a memorandum to program coordinators explaining replacement projects.
