Shore, Rima, Ed.; And Others
This report describes, provides demographic data for, and evaluates the success of Project ELITES, a bilingual program for Arabic, Greek, and Spanish speaking students in Fort Hamilton High School, Brooklyn, New York. Project ELITES, which served approximately 250 students in 1980-81, utilizes an individualized approach designed to mainstream students into regular school courses and activities. Included in the instructional component are basic skills courses, courses for gifted students, and career education courses. Bilingual instruction is provided in language skills, mathematics, social studies, and science, while students participate in regular classes in other subject areas. Also prominent in Project ELITES is a career education program, which is organized on the basis of career clusters. The project's noninstructional component includes budgeted funds for administration and supervision, curriculum development, supportive and secretarial services, staff development, and parental and community involvement. The evaluation performed for the 1980-81 year found significant achievement and high attendance rates among students participating in Project ELITES. (GC)
