Summary

A 3-year school-community outdoor education program in the elementary school district in Crystal Lake, Illinois, was funded in 1967 under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Success of the project was such that the board of education agreed to fund the program locally and enlarge its scope. As reported, the keynotes were innovative and exemplary educational practices, notably in organization and administration. Such practices included the following: the project (1) was carried on by 2 agencies of the local government--the school district and the Crystal Lake Park District; (2) was a multi-district program and a school-community effort; (3) was professionally planned and directed and has produced several professional publications; (4) was accompanied by in-service education activities such as workshops, institutes, and conferences; (5) was university-related (Northern Illinois University); and (6) has experienced steady growth, having approximately 9,000 child-days of participation in 1967-68 and 14,000 in 1969-70.
