Staff Helping Attain Relevant Education (Project SHARE) 1990-91. Final Evaluation Profile. OREA Report.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment.
Project SHARE (Staff Helping Attain Relevant Education) designed and implemented a consultative/assistance team approach to assess and meet the instructional needs of handicapped students with limited English proficiency enrolled in kindergarten through grade 2 in New York City Public Schools. The program sought to develop the students' cognitive/academic and social skills through the use of native language (Spanish) and English-as-a-Second-Language techniques. The project provided consultants to train staff in consultative/collaborative strategies. Evaluation of 77 student participants indicated that the project's strength was its focus on early intervention and prevention. The time-consuming nature of the one-on-one sessions caused staff concerns about including additional project sites. This evaluation report describes staffing, project implementation and outcomes, and a case history. An appendix describes data collection and analysis procedures. (JDD)
