Newark School District Evaluation of EHA-B Special Education Projects, 1989-1990.
Sutherland, Marcia E.; Collins, Beverly
This report evaluates nine supplemental education programs of the Newark (New Jersey) school system receiving funds from the Education of the Handicapped Act--Part B. The projects variously deal with academic, cultural, psychological, social, and service related concerns. Evaluation was conducted through interviews, on-site observation, and examination of academic achievement data. Specific projects addressed the following: occupational training and placement; improved coping and classroom skills of emotionally disturbed students; personnel and parent training; supplemental reading and mathematics instruction; instruction of deaf students in survival skills; preschool intervention; and nonacademic after-school recreational programs for physically disabled, chronically ill, and other handicapped students. Among general recommendations are the following: inclusion of measures of project outcomes in final reports; inclusion of assessment of student satisfaction with project activities; reports which clearly describe all academic tests and students; evidentiary information on student outcomes; adherence to standards on eligibility for project admittance; exploration of innovative instructional practices; improved inservice training; better communication among and between staff members; and establishment of formal communications between project staff and central office staff.
