Bilingual Pupil Services. E.S.E.A. Title I. Final Evaluation Report, 1980-1981.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Educational Evaluation.
This report describes the Bilingual Pupil Services project (B.P.S.) which provided basic instruction in English reading, Spanish reading, and mathematics to Spanish-speaking students of limited English proficiency in New York City community schools. Also presented are the results of program evaluation for 1980-81. The report outlines the project goals and objectives, describes the project context, and discusses such program components as organization and personnel, instructional procedures and activities, staff development, curriculum and materials development, and parental involvement. A summary of interviews with paraprofessionals who were trained to serve in the program and with some supervising principals is presented. The report on program evaluation includes a description of assessment procedures, the findings on students achievement in English reading, Spanish reading, and mathematics, and data on student attendance rates. It is reported that the program was generally effective, but it is suggested that even greater student gains would be demonstrated if new testing instruments, which are congruent with actual curriculum content, were to be employed.
