The Computers in Bilingual Education (CIBE) program offers instruction in computer literacy and in academic subjects for limited English proficient (LEP) students at the South Bronx High School in New York City. A variety of public funding sources were used to provide materials, personnel and staff development for the program. During the first two years of CIBE, 302 low income Spanish-speaking students in grades 9 through 11 were served. The staff participated in activities to encourage parental involvement. Staff members plan to translate mainstream curriculum materials into Spanish if reallocation of monies is approved. The program successfully encouraged student attendance and promoted teamwork among school, project, and bilingual staff. Statistical data are presented to show the full and partial achievement of the academic objectives. Recommendations for improvement of CIBE are: (1) weekend events and a bilingual newsletter for parents; (2) reorganization of staff to prevent burnout; (3) purchase of new office equipment; and (4) compilation of a list of program developed materials.
