P.L. 89-313. Supplementary Services for Previously Nonpublic School Institutionalized Students, 1983-84. O.E.E. Evaluation Report.
Tobias, Robert; And Others
During 1983-84, the Public Law 89-313 program served 2,053 students who were formerly educated in State-operated or State-supported schools through the following components and subcomponents: the Regional Services Instructional Support Unit; Citywide Services, consisting of Instructional Supplies and Equipment and Hearing Education Services; and the High School Outreach Program, including the Placement and Referral Center for the Handicapped. Analyses of pupil achievement data indicated that attainment of program objectives varied. However, nearly all students served by the program demonstrated positive growth in at least one of the following: communication, reading, mathematics, sensory and motor development, self-help and societal/community living skills, and vocational competencies. In addition, observations and interviews indicated that, for the most part, program services met the individual needs of the students and effectively supplemented basic instructional activities. In 1983-84, the program showed favorable results in terms of number of pupils served, activities, and objectives mastered, as compared to previous years. However, all components and subcomponents suffered some delays in implementation and fewer students were served than were eligible due to high student transiency. Recommendations address these and other problems. (GC)
