Zephirin, Henriot; Schulman, Robert
Project Bilingual Spanish-to-English Career Training (BISECT) in its first year of funding offered bilingual instruction, career awareness development, and supportive services to 255 Hispanic students of limited English proficiency. Title VII, Title I, and tax-levy funds supported the program, which was implemented at DeWitt Clinton High School (Bronx, New York). In addition to student instructional services, a number of other areas were covered: curriculum development; staff development; parent participation; and supportive services, including guidance and academic counseling, home visits, career awareness activities, visits to educational and cultural sites, two newsletters, and visits to junior high schools. Analysis of student data indicated that (1) the program met its objectives in English language development; (2 IMPACT students exceeded program objectives in career or vocational classes and in mathematics, science, social studies, and native language courses; and (3) attendance of program students was significantly higher than the school's general attendance rate.
