The College School

     Jeanne Geddes-Key, the new director of The College
School-the University's alternative education program for
children ages 6-13-is involving students from other parts of the
     Children in The College School have normal to bright
intelligence, but they experience learning difficulties in
traditional school settings. With small classes and
individualized instruction, the school works to help these
children return to the mainstream in a few years' time.
     "One of my primary goals is to enhance the partnership
between The College School and other units at the University,"
Geddes-Key says. "Right now, I have students from the psychology,
nursing, music and physical education departments working with
our students. The nursing students do vision and hearing
screening, the P.E. students develop fitness programs and a
psychology graduate student is doing educational testing. I want
more and more of this."
