Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield, Dept. of Planning, Research and Evaluation.
Individual summaries of each of the 76 Illinois school districts with state-funded transitional bilingual education programs are presented. Each summary provides information on the number of students, language groups served, funding, grades served, staffing, number of school buildings, number of students in each language proficiency category, language tests utilized, and program highlights. In addition, more in-depth information on program variables, inservice activities, parent involvement, and student identification and assessment is reported for five selected districts. These districts were selected for case studies to represent urban, suburban, and rural programs of various sizes and models. The case studies involved site visits which include observations of curriculum, teaching methods, assessment practices, program philosophy, staff coordination, and program strengths and weaknesses.
