Hunter, Susanne; Kettle, Helen
The Kumtuks program, an alternative rehabilitation program established by the Vancouver School Board in 1976 for Native Indian students, is described. Kumtuks was established to retain students between grades 6 and 9 when the drop-out rate among Native Indian students is the highest. The results of the evaluation of the first two years (1976-78), and of the third year of the Kumtuks program (September 1978 to June 1979) are summarized. Details of the report include: background information/description of the program; evaluation procedures; student data (attendance, achievement, student progress); opinion data (strengths/weaknesses of program and integration process); and miscellaneous appendices (opinions of staff, parents, students, etc.). Suggestions for areas of improvement are also discussed. (Author/GK)
