Race Against Time: Secondary Title VII Program Evaluation, 1988-89. Executive Summary
Yonan, Barbara; Baenen, Nancy
During 1988-89, the Austin Independent School District's Title 7 program continued to supplement services through the locally funded bilingual and English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) programs to secondary students of limited English proficiency. The 1988-89 Title 7 evaluation report provides an overview of the programs's changes, staff training, parent/family workshops, curriculum development, and budget, and the characteristics of the students and teachers participating in the program are described. The extent to which the program has had a positive impact on student progress is discussed, focusing on English language proficiency, English language achievement, dropout/graduation rates, and exit-level TEAMS test results. A final section of the evaluation highlights the needs of limited-English-proficient students, and suggests that these students need placement with teachers with special training in ESL teaching techniques.
