Pilot Projects. Disadvantaged Pupil Program Fund. Evaluation Report, 1982-83.
This report presents an evaluation for the school year 1982-1983, of the Pilot Projects component of the Cleveland Public Schools, for grades K-10. The purpose of the component is to develop and pilot innovative approaches for meeting selected needs of disadvantaged students at the local level. Pilot Projects are small grants that are designed, implemented, and evaluated by local school personnel. Ongoing supervision of selected projects is provided by the project manager, school principals, and subject-area supervisors. Progress reviews and final evaluation forms are completed by coordinators. In the school year 1982-83, the projects funded were: Concrete Mathematical Abilities; Developmental Play Labs and Curriculum (for multihandicapped/autistic children); Home Learning Center Curriculum (for autistic children); Improvement of Basic Social Studies Skills among Geography Students; Practical Life Skills and Sensorial Training (for nonreading visually impaired, children); Practical and Real Life Language and Learning Usage; and Self Imagery Improvement (for potential dropouts). No evaluation material was received for two of the projects, but 15 (94 percent) of the 16 objectives for the remaining 5 projects were attained, reflecting better than average success in project implementation.
