The School Action Effectiveness Study: Second Interim Report. Part I. Report No. 342.
Gotfredson, Gary D.; And Others
This report, prepared by the Delinquency and School Environments Program, describes further interim results of the program's national evaluation of the Alternative Education Program of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). The report is directed primarily to project implementers and to the OJJDP and is organized in two sections: the first presents a discussion of topics relevant to the entire study. Chapter 1 recapitulates briefly the first chapter of the first interim report to provide a quick introduction for those unfamiliar with the Alternative Education Program. Chapter 2 reviews chapters 2-4 of the first interim report to outline the record of accomplishment of earlier delinquency prevention efforts, and the program development evaluation. Chapter 3 describes changes made in the measures used in the school action effectiveness study. Chapter 4 describes the kinds of delinquency prevention projects in the initiative, the major influences on the evaluation, and the development of the prevention projects during the second year of the Alternative Education Program. Chapter 5 provides an overview of the school-level evaluation results. Chapter 6 summarizes information about the effects of interventions targeted at high-risk individuals for projects that have such targeted interventions as distinct, evaluatable components. The final chapter draws implications and makes recommendations. Part 2 of the report consists of 14 independent reports of the prevention project. The appendices contain detailed statistical tables and other material relating to the results summarized in part 1. (JAC)
