The Bronx Computer Literacy and Methodologies of Bilingual Education Program for Vietnamese and Cambodian High School Students: Project CLIMB. Evaluation Section Report. OREA Report.
Berney, Tomi D.; Keyes, Jose L.
The Bronx Computer Literacy and Methodologies of Bilingual Education Program for Vietnamese and Cambodian High School Students (Project CLIMB) served 221 students of limited English proficiency (LEP) at Christopher Columbus and Walton High Schools in the Bronx (New York City). The objectives of the program were to develop the students' academic skills, assist them to improve their competency in English, and foster parents' understanding of the American educational system. The program appeared to meet the attendance objective and met one of its staff development objectives. Recommendations were made that Walton High School should: (1) provide instruction on the role of the paraprofessional in the classroom; and (2) develop an instrument to measure staff awareness of students' needs and problems, or modify this objective. In addition, the project should provide required data for OREA to measure its objectives. (GLR)
