Evaluation Report for the District 19 Bilingual/Bicultural Elementary Program.
The District 19 (Brooklyn, New York) Bilingual/Bicultural Elementary Program operated on the K-6 level in eight schools during the 1978-1979 school year. The broad goals of the program were to expand the number, scope, skills, services, and student-teacher interactions of the district's bilingual staff and to develop and administer a competent bilingual program. Program evaluation was accomplished through classroom observation; interviews with faculty, staff, principals, and students; and measures of student achievement in reading (Spanish and English) and math. Evaluation findings indicated that (1) teachers rated the program satisfactory to excellent, (2) teachers and educational assistants were highly rated, (3) classrooms were conducive to learning, (4) students were responsive to instruction and for the most part spoke in the language of instruction during instructional periods, and (5) pre and posttest student achievement data showed that instruction was successful. Recommendations for future planning were made. (MK)
