Transitional Class Program, 1979-80. OEE Evaluation Report.
Opperman, Prudence Ward; And Others
This evaluation report describes the implementation and results of the 1979-80 Transitional Class Program. Although the program no longer exists as a centrally-coordinated effort, it serves as a final summary of the program's two years of operation by comparing the results from one year (1978-1979) to the next (1979-1980), and provides guidance to educators engaged in developing programs with similar objectives. Among the issues addressed in this report are the following: (1) to what extent can central administrators set policy for programs implemented in a decentralized school system?; (2) if policy can be made centrally, what problems are encountered and how might they be overcome?; (3) what are reasonable expectations for programs designed to support and foster the educational growth of underachieving children?; and (4) what are the basic, common components of programs aimed at meeting the special instructional needs of low-achieving pupils throughout the New York City public schools? The report is organized into five sections: Program Background, Description of the Program, Program Assessment, Further Study of 45 Classes, and Evaluation Comments and Recommendations. (Author/GK)
