Responsive Early Childhood Education Program (RECEP).
Goldsboro City Schools, NC.
The Goldsboro City Schools' Responsive Early Childhood Education Program (RECEP) is a program of language, mathematics, and problem-solving for economically disadvantaged children in kindergarten and the primary grades. The project was designed to: (1) increase children's learning of basic language and mathematics skills; (2) develop children's problem-solving abilities; and (3) foster children's positive attitudes toward learning. The program focuses on all aspects of children's learning and development, including instruction, medical and dental health, nutrition, psychological services, social services, staff development, and parent participation. The program includes parent-child learning centers that provide materials for parents to use at home in an effort to help their children master basic skills. Evaluation of program effectiveness indicates that the RECEP significantly improves young school children's attitudes toward academics and academic achievement in the basic skills. In addition, longitudinal studies indicate positive program effects on participants' standardized achievement test performance. Parts of the project have been successfully replicated statewide. This document describes the program, its achievements, its personnel, and their jobs. Budget estimates are provided. (RH)
