The Asian American Communications In-School Staff and Parent Workshops (A-AC) provided three phases of on-site workshops on Asian cultures for personnel in New York City schools with large Asian student populations, and also provided related support services upon request. Phase I workshops were based on a needs survey, Phase II workshops were follow-up workshops, and Phase III workshops provided information on Chinese American history and literature upon request. Evaluation information included questionnaires completed by workshop participants and telephone interviews with principals and workshop participants from 11 of the 47 schools receiving services in 1989-90. A-AC met its objectives of conducting a pre-Phase I needs assessment, providing 40 Phase I workshops and 20 Phase II workshops, and offering Phase III workshops and follow-up services upon request. It partially met its objective of providing parent workshops on request due to insufficient staff. The project should reevaluate its involvement in providing support services, given the low level of need expressed by the schools. (FMW)
