Chicago Board of Education, IL. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.
This report focuses on the Bilingual Reinforcement and Enrichment Learning Program Component and the Parent Involvement Component of the Chicago, Illinois public schools' bilingual education program of 1979. A description of the project provides information on student and staff characteristics, program structure, and the instructional needs of participating pupils. Statistics from several indicators of student achievement are shown to demonstrate the program's educational impact. These indicators include: (1) oral language proficiency ratings; (2) instructional needs category ratings; (3) Chicago Continuous Progress/Mastery Learning Levels; and (4) grade scores of the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills in reading and mathematics. In addition, data from a bilingual staff survey are presented. An overall evaluation of the program comparing program goals with program results concludes the report. Appended to the report are three documents: (1) the evaluation of Chicago's Bilingual Education Program; (2) a Title VII evaluation of the Bilingual Reinforcement and Enrichment Learning Program's inservice teacher education efforts; and (3) the preliminary report of the Title VII Reinforcement and Enrichment Program summary of the April, 1979 evaluation survey.
