An Evaluation of Operation Return. New York City Title I Project.
Wasson, Robert M.; And Others
Under a Title I, Elementary Secondary Education Act grant, the New York City Board of Education instituted a pilot project entitled Operation Return, the purpose of which was to provide some form of continuing instruction for pupils who had been suspended from other Board of Education educational opportunities. The major emphasis of the program was to return suspended pupils as soon as possible within a ten-day period to the regular school instruction. The stated objectives of the program were as follows: (1) to provide continuing instruction of a special nature with the hope of improving skills in reading, mathematics, and social living, as well as in other subject matter areas; (2) to work with the family of each student in order to create a partnership of involved concern; and, (3) to manifest such interest in each student that a return to school with the hope of success is possible on a part-time or full-time basis. The evaluation design had two principal components: (1) a description of the project's implementation in each of the instructional settings in terms of the objectives specified above; and (2) determination of the effectiveness of the project in the attainment of those objectives outlined both generally and specifically in the project proposal. A total of six districts participated in Operation Return during the 1968-1969 academic year. (Author/JM)
