Policy IHAQ: Comprehensive School System

The Committees endorse as a high priority the goal of providing allstudents with a broad spectrum of information on career opportunitiesand an extensive set of learning options for developing:

a. Knowledge, skills and attitudes useful in most occupations; and

b. Specialized knowledge and skills useful in career areas selected by individual students.

In pursuing this goal, the Committees believe that more students willbe served by providing career information and specific and generaloccupational training programs at varying age levels in a comprehensiveschool system. Then students can emphasize either the academic oroccupational aspects of a curriculum at the most meaningful times intheir individualized learning programs.
