Asselle, Maria Grazia; And Others
In its fourth year at John Jay High School (Brooklyn) and funded under Title VII, Project TRIUNFE provided supplementary services to the regular bilingual education program for 290 Hispanic, Haitian, and Asian students of limited English proficiency. The project provided computer literacy training, computer-assisted instruction in English as a second language (ESL) and native languages, and content areas, vocational education, counseling, and job placement, parental involvement activities, and staff development activities. All but one program teacher were certified in their areas of instruction. Funding and resource problems limited the provision of some services. Analysis of student achievement data indicates that program objectives were met in ESL, mathematics, science, social studies, Spanish language development, French language development, attendance, student employment, and staff training. Parental involvement data were not available, but meeting attendance was relatively high. Recommendations for program improvement are given. (MSE)
