Project C.A.P.I.S.C.O. New Utrecht High School. ESEA Title VII Final Evaluation Report, 1979-1980.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Educational Evaluation.
This is the evaluation report for the fifth and final year of Project CAPISCO (Comprehensive Academic Program for Italian Students' Citizenship Orientation). The Title VII bilingual (Italian/English) program was carried out at New Utrecht High School, located in the Bay Ridge-Bensonhurst area of Brooklyn, New York, and served 140 students. The students participating in the program demonstrated superior performance in English reading, mathematics, science, social studies, and native (Italian) language arts. In addition, the attendance record of CAPISCO students was better than the rate for the general school population. The program's success is attributed to strong motivation on the part of the bilingual staff and to the involvement of program parents. In addition to discussing instructional activities and student achievement, this report describes administrative procedures, staff and curriculum development activities, family and supportive services, and the community relations component of Project CAPISCO.
