Career Awareness Program for Bilingual Haitian and Hispanic Students (Project CAP), 1989-90. Final Evaluation Report.
Council of New Jersey State Coll. Locals.
The New York City (New York) Board of Education's project, Career Awareness Program for Bilingual Haitian and Hispanic High School Students (Project CAP), at two high schools in Brooklyn completed its first year (the 1989-90 school year) and was evaluated. The Prospect Heights High School offered a pilot program that included occupational education (food management), survival skills mathematics, career awareness, and extracurricular activities to all participants. Limited activities were provided at George Wingate High School due to the retirement of the assistant principal for foreign languages. Project staff at that school met with groups of students after school. The evaluation found that Project CAP served 497 students and was only partially implemented. Late receipt of funding delayed delivery of computers and instructional materials. Project participants received instruction in English as a second language, native language arts (NLA), and career education. The project met its objectives for attendance, field trips, and career conference activities. It partially met its objectives for content area subjects and dropout prevention. It failed to meet its objective for NLA, and one objective for staff development. Other objectives could not be assessed. (JB)
