Bilingual Occupational Education--Adult. Evaluation Report.
Rochester City School District, NY.
The overall objective of the program was to provide 200 Spanish-speaking adults and out-of-school youth, 16 years of age or older, with occupational instruction and English language skills which would enhance the enrollees' opportunities to acquire entry level job skills or upgrade the enrollees' present occupational status. The program began with 86 enrollees actively participating in one out of nine of the following courses: Cosmetology, automotive mechanic, electricity, commercial photography, nursing science, office skills, automotive body and painting, and basic adult education. The courses were made available at four school districts' facilities easily accessible to the target population. The program content consisted of: (1) Actual instruction of courses (provided both in Spanish and English), (2) three hours per week of instruction in English as a second language (ESL), and (3) counseling, as a supplement to instructional quality, in career and occupational areas. Second semester enrollment increased by 149 new enrollees with courses in accounting and welding being added to the program curriculum. Positive comments were received from community agencies on the operation of the program. (WL)
