An Evaluation of Project LEAP, E.S.E.A. Title I Program of Medford, Massachusetts, 1980-1981.
Kaufman, Maurice; And Others
During the 1980-1981 school year, the Medford, Massachusetts, Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I program, Project LEAP, provided services in reading and language skills to approximately 400 students in grades kindergarten through six. Additional program components included instruction in perceptual/motor skills, career awareness (for sixth graders), and school adjustment. California Achievement Test results showed significant gains in each subtest at each grade level. (Subtests measured reading and language skills.) Gains were also demonstrated by a group of selected students in most areas of perceptual/motor skills. Sixth graders showed growth of knowledge, self-awareness, and interest about careers. Results of a behavior/attitude checklist indicated that children in the program improved in behavior and school attitudes. Evaluators found the school administration supportive of Project LEAP. Results of a questionnaire demonstrated that parents were involved and interested in the program. (Author/MK)
