Aspire To Win through Academic Retention in Excellence (Project AWARE). 1989-90 Final Evaluation Report.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment.
Aspire to Win through Academic Retention in Excellence (Project AWARE) was evaluated after its first year (1989-90) of offering limited-English-proficient Spanish-speaking students individual and group counseling, college and career guidance, family assistance, and youth leadership development. Services were also given to families and to students who were pregnant, parenting, or in temporary living arrangements. The program served 677 students attending George Washington, Morris, Newtown, and East District High Schools in New York City. ASPIRA, a community-based organization, was in charge of organizing, supervising, and implementing this program. Project AWARE met its objectives in compliance and parental involvement, and partially met its objective for attendance. However, the project did not meet its objective for increasing the grade passing rate. Specific recommendations were made for improving service delivery. Statistical data are presented in one table.
