Austin Independent School District, TX. Office of Research and Evaluation.
Students of the Austin (Texas) Independent School District who had been in first through sixth grade and had been retained at some point in their school careers were eligible to attend the 1982 summer school for retainees. A total of 1,193 students were enrolled for at least part of the summer school, with a 94 percent attendance rate for the days enrolled. The program was designed to provide additional basic skills instruction so that retainees would not fall further behind during the summer and would be better prepared to benefit from the following year's instruction. Data are provided for attendance population, program features and implementation, short-term objectives, cost, and measurement of long-term objectives. A summary of this information plus appendices (labeled A-G) detailing the purpose, procedures, and results for each information source are presented. The information sources include: (1) summer school student file, (2) teacher records, (3) employee master file, (4) classroom observations, (5) project records (program description), (6) mastery tests, and (7) cost analysis.
