Evaluation of Projects in Vancouver Schools Funded By the Local Initiatives Program.
In the Spring of 1973, The Vancouver School Board operated three projects funded by the Local Initiatives Program (LIP) of the Department of Immigration and Manpower. The projects were: Physical Education Assistant Program; One-to-One Tutoring Program; and Teacher Aids for Learning Assistance Centres. To assess the projects, questionnaires were sent to principals and teachers in schools where the LIP workers were placed. The questionnaire returns indicate that the paraprofessional assistance of the LIP workers was useful. While there were some criticisms of the training of the aids, and the organization of the projects, it is clear that the projects had the support of the principals and teachers concerned. The most convincing evidence of the projects' success was the overwhelming majority of principals and teachers who were in favor of permanent programs of aides in the schools. (Author/MLP)
