ABSTRACT
The article presents information about two procedures currently being tried in some east Kansas elementary schools to assist children in making optimum achievement without interfering with their social adjustment. Both procedures involve an extra year of school, one at kindergarten level and the other between the third and fourth grades. In the first procedure, immature kindergarten children from several eastern Kansas classrooms who seemed to have little chance for success in learning to read were selected to complete an additional year of readiness in the kindergarten. In each case parental approval was secured and great effort was made to have the second kindergarten year different from the first. The second procedure being used to permit children to progress in school at a rate in keeping with their development involves a year of work between the traditional third and fourth grades. This procedure is currently in use in some of the schools in Hutchinson, Kansas. Certain children whose rate of development has been such that they have fallen behind their third grade classmates are selected for enrollment in a special class.
