This report describes the Project Parents Program of the Office of Bilingual Education in the New York City Public Schools. The project, developed for parents with children in, or eligible for, bilingual education programs, provided reinforcement of education in the home and encouraged parental involvement in their children's schooling. The report describes the community school districts participating in the program, outlines the characteristics of program participants, and discusses program components such as staffing, the details of implementation, the insturctional component which consists of classroom instruction and workshops, materials acquisition/development, and staff development. Process evaluation indicates that the project seems conceptually well-grounded and potentially able to train parents in becoming involved in bilingual education programs for their children. Recommendations for greater program effectiveness and for program evaluation are presented. Appendices contain sample program materials in Spanish or in English. (Author/MJL)
