The Summer Leadership Program 1987. OEA Evaluation Report.
Mei, Dolores M.; And Others
The 1987 Summer Leadership Program was a new initiative of the Division of High Schools for all incoming high school students and their parents. In essence, the program served as an orientation to high school. Most schools organized 12 hours of activities, spread over a period of 2 to 4 days. The program was implemented at 108 New York City high schools, and schools were encouraged to develop programs tailored to their own specializations as well as to the needs and interests of incoming students. Visits by Office of Educational Assessment staff to 11 program sites indicated that Summer Leadership Program activities appeared to be successful and relevant to students' and parents' concerns. Analyses of participants' responses to questionnaires regarding the program indicated that the sessions provided a comprehensive overview of most school components. This document presents an evaluation of the Summer Leadership Program. Chapter I, Introduction, discusses the program background, evaluation objectives, program evaluation, and the scope of this report. Chapter II, Program Implementation, examine various aspects of the program, including the program structure, student participation level, parent participation, and program staff. Program activities are described and analyzed in chapter III. Chapter IV contains conclusions and recommendations. (NB)
