Higher Achievement and Improvement Through Instruction with Computers and Scholarly Transition and Resource Systems Program (Project HAITI STARS), 1989-90. Final Evaluation Report.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment.
A final evaluation was conducted in the 1989-90 school year of New York City (New York) Board of Education's project, Higher Achievement and Improvement Through Instruction with Computers and Scholarly Transition and Resource Systems (HAITI STARS). The project served 524 limited-English-proficient Spanish-speaking students at Far Rockaway High School in Queens, Haitian Creole-speaking students at Andrew Jackson High School in Queens, and Chinese-speaking students at Sheepshead Bay High School in Brooklyn. Participating students received instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL), native language arts (NLA), and content area subjects presented bilingually or with ESL methodology and computer science. HAITI STARS also provided curriculum development and activities for parental involvement. The results of the evaluation indicate that the project was fully implemented. The students did receive instruction in ESL, NLA, content area subjects, computer education, and career advisement. The project met its objectives with regard to those instructional areas, referral to special programs, referral to special education, and curriculum development. However, the program only partially met attendance and parental involvement objectives. Statistical data are not available for objectives related to career advisement, grade retention, placement in programs for the gifted and talented, and postsecondary enrollment. Statistical data are presented in two tables. (JB)
