The New York City Russian Bilingual Program operated in three public and eight private secondary schools and served 740 students from families that immigrated from the Soviet Union. The program offered instruction in English as a Second Language, native language arts, and bilingual instruction in academic subjects. Program participants were mainstreamed for some areas of instruction. Additional program components included curriculum development, supportive services, staff development, parent and community involvement, and extracurricular activities. The program was evaluated through criterion referenced tests of student achievement, interviews with staff members, and evaluator observation. The program was found to be operating effectively. Tables of data are included. Translated competency examinations and program correspondence are appended. (MK)
