Russian/Greek Bilingual Comprehensive Instructional Program, 1989-90. OREA Final Evaluation Report.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment.
During the 1989-90 school year, the Russian/Greek Bilingual Comprehensive Instructional program was fully implemented, serving 707 limited-English-speaking native Russian- and Greek-speaking students at seven public and three private high schools. Participating students received instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL), native language arts (NLA), bilingual/ESL content areas (mathematics, science, and social studies), and business skills. Personal and career counseling, tutoring, and parent involvement activities were also provided. The project achieved its objectives in ESL, business skills, attendance, support services, and staff development. The program partially met its objectives for career development and parental involvement, but did not achieve its objective in content area courses. It is recommended that the program lower the target passing rate for content area courses to reflect more reasonable expectations. (Author/MSE)
