Summer School Pilot 1983: Second Report to the Texas Education Agency.
Austin Independent School District, TX. Office of Research and Evaluation.
The Austin (TX) Independent School District presents its second report to the Texas Education Agency concerning the Summer School Pilot 1983. It contains a final report summary, a teacher checklist, and an observation followup. The report summary includes the following major findings: (1) retainees who attended summer school and those who did not were rated about the same in reading and math skills and behavior by the fall teachers utilizing a checklist. (2) Project staff had a very favorable view of the summer school program, especially: mastery and supplemental materials, preplanning and inservice programs, smaller campus and class size, support services, and reinforcers used. A change in the eligibility requirement has been approved for next year to allow the program to serve some low achievers who will not be retained. (3) Additional analyses on first-grade observations reveal that, compared to overall instructional time, less time was spent on both instruction in the library and on the first day of class, and there seemed to be little difference in instructional time based on staggered or unstaggered schedules. An instrument description, and details of the purpose, procedures, and results of the teacher checklist and observation followup are included. (PN)
