Summer Day 1969 Elementary School Program for Disadvantaged Pupils. Evaluation of State Urban Education Programs in New York City.
Fox, David J.; And Others
This is a report which describes and evaluates a Summer Day Elementary School (SDES) program conducted in 1969 and involving 153 elementary schools in New York City. For six weeks, 37,502 children from disadvantaged areas attended voluntarily for a half day. Services provided included: (1) reading and arithmetic (Basic Component); (2) enrichment for the academically gifted or talented (Gifted and Enrichment Component); (3) continuity for the mentally retarded (CRMD Component); and, (4) instruction in English as a second language (ESL Component). The extensive evaluation disclosed various strengths and weaknesses of all components. The major changes suggested were: (1) separate levels of instruction for children at or near grade level and those well below grade level; (2) improved communication in the CRMD Component; (3) more consistent selection of qualified teachers in the ESL Component; and, (4) year round commitment of staff, and early commitment of funds for significant improvement in the success level of the summer program.
