Bienvenido Bilingual Education Project: End of Year Report, Fiscal Year 1981.
Clark County School District, Las Vegas, NV.
The Bienvenido Bilingual Education Project was funded under Title VII of the Elementary Secondary Education Act and implemented in kindergarten, first and second grade classrooms of two elementary schools in Clark County, Nevada. The project aimed to provide for the bilingual educational needs of Spanish speaking students which had not been met by other language programs. Since the project also was designed to improve English language skills among children of limited English language proficiency through peer assistance, and to broaden understanding of other languages and cultures among monolingual English speaking students, classes consisted of a majority of Spanish speakers and some monolingual English speakers. Additional objectives included: (1) increased mathematics skills; (2) the development of readiness skills among kindergarten pupils; (3) the development of instructional resources; (4) provision of staff training; and (5) promotion of parent involvement. In general, most of the objectives were attained. It is recommended that the program be extended to include third grade in 1981-82. (Author/MJL)
