Cotayo, Armando; And Others
The Bilingual Academic and Career Orientation Program (BACOP) at George Washington High School in New York City is a basic bilingual secondary education program with a career orientation focus. In 1981-82, the program offered bilingual instructional and supportive services to 250 Hispanic students of limited English proficiency in grades nine through eleven. Other program activities included staff training, provision of opportunities for parent involvement, and curriculum development. This report describes the program context, components, participants, activities, and evaluation. Evaluation results indicate that, in general: (1) participants met the criterion objective for English; (2) participants did not show significant improvement in Spanish language skills; (3) over half of the participants passed teacher-made tests in mathematics, science, and social studies; and (4) the attendance rate of the program participants was higher than the school-wide attendance rate. Recommendations for program improvement are presented. A description of the program evaluation plan is provided in the appendix. (MJL)
