This article focuses on the students of Lamphere High School in Madison Heights, Michigan, have twice experienced a registration procedure designed to add a personal touch to their initial confrontation with the opening of each new school session. Under the direction of the administrative staff of the 1,150 student high school in suburban Detroit, the first attempt at scheduling and registering the entire student body in one day was staged in January 1970. This September registration at Lamphere included more than the procedure of scheduling students into class sections. Using the school gymnasium as a registration room involved subdividing the entire complex into several smaller areas. Based on alphabetical groups, students were assigned arrival times at half-hour intervals. When a student was admitted to the registration area, he was handed a labeled but still empty envelope and a master identification data card. The success of this system was dependent upon the alert student workers who were assigned to the various stations throughout the registration line.
