The Street Academy. Final Evaluation Report.
Bournazos, Kimon; And Others
The Street Academy is an alternative school specially designed for students aged 12 to 18 who cannot acclimate to the regular public school system. The purpose of the evaluation is, generally, to see if the program is serving the students for whom it was established. The evaluation is also concerned with such areas as academic skills development, student absenteeism, the rate at which students are acquiring high school credits, evaluations of the teaching staff, student perceptions, student and parent perceptions of the program, and parent evaluations. Extensive data are presented on the evaluation findings. On the whole, the program was found to be making positive progress toward meeting its objectives. There are, however, a number of areas that should be examined more closely and a number of changes that may have to be seriously considered if the Street Academy program is to grow in the proper direction and be of optimum service to its students and the community. Recommendations are included. (Author/IRT)
