This report describes and evaluates Project At Your Service, a basic bilingual secondary education program with a vocational focus for Spanish speaking students and students from other minority language groups. As implemented in 1980-81, the program aimed to enhance the acquisition of the English language and to promote academic achievement among students of limited English proficiency through instruction in English as a Second Language, English reading, the native language, mathematics, social studies, science, and vocational courses. The program also provided for curriculum and materials development, counseling services, staff training, and parent involvement. In general, program participants showed favorable attitudes to the program. Evaluation indicated that the program achieved its objectives for reading in English. Data on achievement in the content areas were not available. It was suggested that collaborative efforts in program planning and implementation would help improve the program. (Author/MJL)
