Federal Programs in PUHSS: An Evaluation Report.
Phoenix Union High School District, AZ.
The programs described in this report, including the South Mountain High School Reading Program, the Carl Hayden High School Reading Program, the Phoenix Union High School Reading Program, the South Mountain High School Saturation Guidance and Counseling Program (SGCP), the Work Incentive Program (WIN), the Phoenix Union High School Star Reach Program, and the South Phoenix Area Cultural Enrichment Program, typically attempted to raise the level of academic achievement of groups of either high school or adult students through a combination of reading skills instruction and counseling. Although individualized treatment was used, students were typically organized into groups--i.e., remedial, corrective, accelerative--where common needs existed. Program benefits are typically indicated by an increase in student group average score on a standardized reading test following the course of instruction. At least one program--SGCP--attempted to modify the self image of its students. Project WIN, financed by the Employment Security Commission, was aimed at adult welfare recipients from disadvantaged backgrounds. (JM)
