New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Educational Evaluation.
This report provides evaluation findings of the 1981-82 Promotional Gates program, a program designed to bolster instruction and learning in order to enable New York City public school students in grades four and seven to meet city-wide performance standards required for promotion. Altogether, there are six chapters. The first chapter deals with how well the program has been implemented and the degree of academic progress of Gates students in reading and mathematics skills. Chapter two outlines program activities which occurred prior to September 1981. Also discussed are issues of pupil accounting, student eligibility, selection of instructional programs, and selection and training of staff. Chapter three deals with program implementation, most notably, organization, support from central and district offices, teachers' reaction to curricula, impact of the program on participants and their recommendations. Chapter four analyzes achievement outcomes for students who were held over as a result of the Gates program. Chapter five presents synopses of four case studies of Gates participants in a bilingual, a district-optional, a self-contained, and a departmentalized Gates program, respectively. The final chapter highlights program organization, adherence to guidelines, and staffing. (WAM)
