Project HAPTT: Haitian Parent and Teacher Training Program. Program Evaluation, [1st Year]. Final Report
Joseph, Carole Berotte; Blot, Richard K.
Project HAPTT (Haitian Parent-Teacher Training) is a training program for educators and members of the New York community who work with limited English proficient Haitian students in Haitian Creole/French-English bilingual programs. The project is comprised of two components: the Parent Training Institute (which helps parents acquire skills to assist their children in the educational process) and the College Component (which identifies and assists Haitian Americans who have an interest in pursuing a career in education). Both components were evaluated in 1981-82, the first year of Project HAPTT. The evaluation of the college component focused on: the recruitment and hiring of staff; the recruitment and screening of prospective trainees; the course of study offered; and the general success of the program. By the end of the year, all trainees were found to have a good understanding of their responsibilities as part of the program, the goals of bilingual education, and the needs of the Haitian community. The evaluators also found that the Parent Component was highly successful in meeting its first-year goals. It concentrated its efforts on gathering and disseminating information, developing materials, preparing and holding workshops and conferences, and producing radio programs. Despite its overall success, the parent outreach activities encountered difficulties in the area of radio programming. During the year of the evaluation, a Project Advisory Committee was formed to discuss the Project's progress and to identify concerns and goals. (This paper concludes with a list of workshops and special training sessions held, and materials prepared, by Project HAPTT in 1981-82.) (KH)
