Coca-Cola Hispanic Education Fund: Los Angeles Program Description.
Coca Cola Bottling Co. of Los Angeles, CA.
The Coca-Cola Hispanic Education Fund was created in response to the high school dropout problem in Los Angeles. The Fund enables the Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Los Angeles to build upon the successful relationship it has developed in the Hispanic community and maximizes the effectiveness of existing student support programs by directing needy students into these programs at an early stage. Administrators, counselors, teachers, and aides identify sophomore students who during their junior high school careers were known to have academic, attendance, economic, family, and other problems. Both team teaching and the buddy system approach are employed in assisting these students. Major program components are the Student Identification, Incentive Activities, Orientation, Instructional Core, and Tutoring Projects. Program activities are enhanced by such existing school programs as the Attendance Motivation Program, Chapter 1 teacher and student assistance services, student orientation and government programs, youth services programs, and other on-going projects sponsored by the Coca-Cola Company. Program evaluation will involve analyses of individual and group attendance patterns and student progress; observations of program procedures and activities by teachers, students, parents, and administrators; review of periodic reports; and feedback from a Program Advisory Council comprised of school system, civic, political and business representatives.
