Project HAPTT: Haitian Parent and Teacher Training Program. Program Evaluation, 3rd Year. Final Report.
Joseph, Carole Berotte; Blot, Richard K.
The third and final year of Project HAPTT (Haitian Parent and Teacher Training), 1983-84, is evaluated in this report. Project HAPTT is a program of training for educators and New York City community members who work with limited English proficient Haitian students in Haitian Creole/French-English bilingual programs. The first part of the paper describes why and how Project HAPTT was established to attack the problems of Haitian students and parents in the New York City public school system. Next, the Project staff is discussed: no staff changes for 1983-84 are reported, and a recommended increase of staff size was not implemented due to the necessity of locating funding. Evaluated next is the College Component of the project, which assists students interested in education in developing a Creole-Haitian concentration. It functioned as successfully as it had previously. The only major shift in emphasis, it is reported, was in the completion of the process of institutionalizing the Project courses. The discussion of the College Component next focuses on the achievement of the 31 students to whom the Project provided guidance. The remainder of the report deals with activities carried out by the Project's Advisory Council and its Parent Component, which disseminates information to Haitian parents. Conferences, workshops, meetings, and interactions with other institutions are also described. The findings of a survey of Haitian students in public and private schools are summarized. The evaluation concludes with recommendations for the Project's funding agency. An appendix includes the agenda and a list of organizers of the Project-sponsored Symposium on Haitian Creole. (KH)
