San Juan School Evaluation. Research and Evaluation Report Series No. 27.
Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Albuquerque, NM.
The San Juan School (Espanola, New Mexico) was evaluated by a team from the Bureau of Indian Affairs' Central Office staff in Albuquerque. Team members assisted the Division of Program Review as representatives from other divisions, using the expertise in their respective fields. The methodology and techniques, which were left to the evaluator's discretion, included questionnaires, observations during school visits, interviews, and parent opinionnnaire. Program information categories selected for review and evaluation were presented and discussed with the San Juan Pueblo school staff and school board in separate meetings. Designated categories were: (1) school philosophy and goals; (2) curriculum; (3) instructional program; (4) testing and self-evaluation; (5) out-of-class activities; (6) administration (school, agency, and area); (7) school facilities and plant; and (8) community involvement. For the reports in this publication, each evaluator compiled and analyzed the data, presenting the findings in a summary form. Some findings are: (1) 57 percent of the respondents (school board, PTA, tribal officials, and parents) felt the present program goals and objectives were satisfactory; (2) there were few planned or competitive sports and recreation events due to a lack of facilities, equipment, staff, and money; (3) food services suffer from insufficient staff; and (4) 63 percent of the parents felt their children would be ready for public school on completing study at San Juan Day School.
