Preliminary Report on Transitional Classes, New York City Public Schools.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Educational Evaluation.
The Transitional Class Program is a joint effort of the New York City Board of Education and the Community School Districts to provide a positive learning experience for children in their early school years who have fallen behind their peers. This preliminary report describes the program and examines its impact on student attendance. Student attitudes toward the program, staff development, program administration, and program costs are also discussed briefly. It is concluded that despite some problems with supply shortages and low parent participation, the program is responding well to the needs of underachievers. (EB)
