Berney, Tomi D.; Lista, Carlos A.
In its first year, Project Porvenir provided instructional and support services to Spanish-speaking students of limited English proficiency in bilingual and special education in four Bronx (New York) elementary schools. Project goals were to increase students' English language proficiency and develop native language skills, provide career education leading to mainstreaming, and increase awareness of available career education and high school programs. The project met its objectives in general education attendance, career education, staff and curriculum development, and parent involvement. It did not meet its instructional objectives for English as a Second Language. It was not possible to assess attainment of objectives in native language arts or special education attendance. Recommendations for program improvement include generation of proposed materials for bilingual special education and review of the objective for academic mainstreaming and social interaction with peers.
