Final Evaluation Report on the Rafael Cordero Bilingual School, 1978-79.
Cervenka, Edward J.; Rodriguez-Munoz, Juan
The Rafael Cordero Bilingual School (RCBS) provides a basic program in bilingual education for junior high school students. During the 1978-1979 school year, approximately 20% of enrolled students were English-dominant and 80% were Spanish-dominant. The program serves its major educational function as a way-station for bilingual students coming from bilingual elementary programs and prepares them for the challenges they will encounter in high school. The program included a staff development component and a program management component. Program evaluation was completed through pre-posttest student achievement data, attitude surveys, and evaluator observations. Evaluators concluded that the achievement of students at RCBS was quite satisfactory, staff development activities were viewed positively and assisted school personnel, and program management did not appear to improve over the previous year. Recommendations for future program implementation are included. (Author/MK)
