RICHARDSON, JOY B.
THIS REPORT IS AN EVALUATION OF A SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAM FOR DISADVANTAGED ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN IN FOUR OAKLAND SCHOOLS. IN HALF-DAY SESSIONS THE CHILDREN WERE OFFERED READING, MATHEMATICS, AND ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES, FIELD TRIPS, AND PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES. THE EVALUATION IS DERIVED FROM THE ATTENDANCE DATA, RESPONSES OF PARENTS, TEACHERS, AND STUDENTS TO QUESTIONNAIRES, AND SCORES ON PRE- AND POSTTESTS IN ACHIEVEMENT. IT IS FELT THAT "POSITIVE PROGRESS" WAS MADE IN MEETING ACADEMIC AND ENRICHMENT GOALS. TEST RESULTS SHOWED "MODERATE" PUPIL GROWTH IN ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT, AND MANY PARENTS NOTED IMPROVEMENT IN READING AND MATHEMATICS. STUDENTS IN GRADES 3, 4, AND 5 RESPONDED POSITIVELY TO THE PROGRAM. TEACHERS WELCOMED THE HELP OF THE PARENT AND NEIGHBORHOOD YOUTH CORPS AIDES. HALF OF THE REPORT CONSISTS OF SAMPLES OF THE VARIOUS FORMS USED IN THE EVALUATION. (NH)
