Roby, Wallace R.
Project Cumbre, the bilingual education program at the Ann Street Bilingual School in Hartford, Connecticut, was evaluated for the 1981-82 school year. The school was attended by 279 students in kindergarten through grade 6, of whom the majority were Hispanic. The participants, program, and objectives are described. Results are reported on (1) kindergarten oral language and basic concepts, (2) grades 1 through 6 oral language skills, (3) grades 2 through 6 Spanish reading and math, (4) grades 3 through 6 English reading and math, (5) reading and math progress of graduates, (6) followup of Project Cumbre graduates, (7) comparison of project participants with mainstream Hispanic students, (8) recordkeeping of minimum competencies, and (9) parent involvement. A 4-year summary of Project Cumbre's progress is presented. Overall, the students showed great progress in oral language skills and reading but did not perform as expected in math. Recommendations are made regarding expansion of reading instruction, review of the approach to math instruction, and acquisition of data on Hispanic mainstream students. (RW)
