Highline Public Schools Excellence in Education Grant. Final Report.
Highline Public Schools, Seattle, WA.
Data on characteristics and accomplishments of the Highline Public Schools' Excellence in Education Grant Program at Gregory Heights Elementary School are reported. The program, which involves second through sixth grade students, was implemented to increase academic learning time, mathematics and reading scores, and total volunteer time. Factors that increased and decreased academic learning time are identified; program successes are delineated; and positive outcomes concerning the evaluation of student achievement are noted. In all academic areas except fifth grade mathematics, students exceeded the goal of 1.2 months growth for every month spent in reading and mathematics. Volunteer time devoted to directing or assisting in student learning activities increased. Plans for the extension of the program in the future focus on improving student self-esteem and discipline.
