Rowland Bilingual/Bicultural Education Project. Evaluation Report.
Rowland School District, Rowland Heights, CA.
A bilingual/bicultural project for kindergarten children in Rowland Heights, California, is described in this evaluation report. The project included 2 kindergarten classes with approximately 30 children in each class and a bilingual staff. Parents and other community members served as educational volunteers and resource persons. Pre-service and inservice programs were provided for teachers and teacher aides. Pupil performance in the bicultural atmosphere was evaluated by means of a Kindergarten Achievement Profile and an Attitudinal/Adjustment Rating Scale. The project evaluation was also based on information collected by means of questionnaires distributed to teachers, teacher aides, parents, and advisory committee members. Recommendations for improving the project call for closer monitoring of student attendance, revision of student selection criteria, better liaison with target area residents, review of parents who show little interest in program participation, closer matching of teachers and teacher-aides within each classroom, closer monitoring of advisory committee member attendance, and full responsibility on the part of the project director for staff selection and staff selection criteria.
