The Bilingual Academic and Technical Education for Youth Program (BATEY) provides English as a second language (ESL) and bilingual instruction with a vocational focus to foreign born (98 percent of them Hispanic) students at Adlai E. Stevenson High School, Bronx, New York. Under the program, Title VII funds support administrative and support services as well as paraprofessional staff, while instructional services are provided by other sources, including Chapter 720. Program activities include: (1) the development of curriculum materials; (2) bilingual personal and vocational counseling; (3) staff development efforts; and (4) parent involvement activities. Quantitative analysis of student achievement in 1981-82, the program's second year, indicates that students in ESL classes surpassed program objectives by mastering more than one Criterion Referenced English Syntax Test (CREST) objective per month. In addition, participating students surpassed program objectives by passing bilingual industrial arts and business education classes at an equal or better rate than students in regular and vocational education and industrial arts classes. Data are not available to determine the English and Spanish reading achievement of participants. (GC)
