Adlai E. Stevenson High School, Bilingual Academic and Technical Education for Youth Program. O.E.E. Evaluation Report, 1982-1983.
Keyes, Jose Luis; Collins, Carla
The Bilingual Academic and Technical Education for Youth (BATEY) Program completed its third and final year of funding at Adlai E. Stevenson High School, Bronx, New York. In 1982-83, the program offered bilingual instruction and support services to approximately 300 Hispanic students of limited English proficiency in grades 9-12. Although the program emphasized vocational skills training, its ultimate goal was to develop proficiency in English and to prepare students to meet graduation requirements. The program developed and adapted curriculum materials in mechanical drawing, automotive machine shop, home maintenance and repair, bookkeeping and record keeping, American history, and consumer economics. Support services for program students consisted of guidance and career counseling. Staff development activities included monthly department meetings and workshops. Program parents were members of the advisory committee. Quantitative analysis of student achievement showed significant gains in English and Spanish reading and industrial arts. Passing rates in mathematics, science and social studies ranged from 49 to 99 percent. The attendance rate of program students was greater than that of the general school population. It was concluded that the program's success was due to the competence and dedication of the program staff, the acquisition and development of curriculum materials, and the support of the school administration.
