A summary is presented of the Austin Independent School District's demonstration bilingual project, which is funded under Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The purpose of the five-year project is (1) to build up the district's capacity to implement bilingual education through staff development, curriculum development, and parental involvement, and (2) to demonstrate the effectiveness of selected processes in staff development and parental involvement. The instructional component is designed to provide bilingual instructional activities in language arts, reading, and math. The staff development component is responsible for developing preservice and inservice training for bilingual program personnel. In the curriculum development component, special emphasis is placed on the identification and adaptation of culturally relevant instructional materials. The parental involvement component focuses on assisting schools in developing and implementing programs that will lead to improved school-home relations. Program evaluation objectives, decision questions, information needs, dissemination activities, information sources, and data to be collected in the schools are summarized. (SW)
