Cotayo, Armando; And Others
This multi-site project, in its first year of funding, proposed to serve approximately 100 Hispanic students of limited ability in English and Spanish at two junior high schools in economically depressed areas of the Bronx. The project was planned to develop English language skills, to reinforce Spanish language skills, to offer counseling support services, and to provide career guidance information. Students from Theodore Roosevelt High School were to tutor project participants in English reading. Project implementation was delayed for a number of reasons. Nevertheless, the project director was able to identify and establish contact with the new participating sites; review student records to determine student eligibility; advertise and interview condidates for staff positions; hire hourly personnel to develop career awareness curriculum; and identify, review, and purchase textbooks, workbooks, reference books, instructional supplies, and audiovisual materials. For the second year of the project it is recommended that (1) hiring and orienting of staff be expedited; and (2) given the modified project's reduced staff, the most fundamental component, instruction, be given priority.
