This project report describes a program designed to increase the effectiveness of the general educational program for the Filipino-Indian community in the Bainbridge Island School System. The rationale is based on the need for improved home-school contact and communications, the need for improved average daily attendance, and the need for improved cultural enrichment of the curriculum through additional ethnic studies. The project is designed to include three basic components: a) cultural enrichment of social studies; b) individualized programs of remedial activities in the tool subjects; and c) use of home-school liaison aides and other non-certified staff from the Filipino-Indian community. Description is given of the scope of the program, parent-community involvement, and the budget for the program. An evaluation is made and data from the study is presented. Appendices include three surveys used in evaluating the program and an outline for a course in the history of Filipino-American Culture. (SHM)
