Learning Center Program. SY 1987-88. Evaluation Report Summary.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of the Superintendent.
This evaluation summary is a synopsis of information on the school year (SY) 1987-1988 Learning Center program in Hawaii contained in 20 different evaluation reports, one on each Learning Center. Each Learning Center served elementary, intermediate, or high school students, and the program of each was designed to equalize educational opportunities by providing truly open choices to public school students and their parents. Because the program of a Center could be quite specific, some had special admissions requirements or prerequisites. Five Centers offered performing arts; three offered media communications; seven had an occupational-career technology focus; and five offered classic academic courses. The overview section provides the national and state context for the inherent worth of the program. A generic Learning Center is described in goals, definition, and description sections. The four major implementation categories are broken up in the following areas: (1) purposes; (2) program organization; (3) program resources; (4) and students served. Students' evaluations and parents' evaluations are examined. Major accomplishments, needs, and concerns are also discussed. The paper concludes with a discussion and recommendations section. Data are presented on 15 figures and 7 tables. A list of 21 references is included. An appendix lists the 20 Learning Centers covered in the evaluation. (DF)
