Site Descriptive Protocols of Programs for Ethnolinguistically Diverse Classrooms.
Castaneda, Lillian Vega
The Southwest Regional Laboratory's Metropolitan Educational Trends and Research Outcomes (METRO) Center processed 17 descriptions of exemplary sites that addressed the needs of language minority, limited English proficient students. Data were collected regarding program features; schools' and districts' size, geographic location, grades served, number of classes involved, and languages spoken; school organization; instructional leadership; school climate; student characteristics and performance; instructional features; and support components. This report provides descriptive data, in the form of survey item responses, for the following six sites and programs that were found to have the most comprehensive documentation and support data: (1) the Irvine (California) Unified School District's Pre-School Program; (2) the Nogales (Arizona) High School Comprehensive Bilingual Program; (3) the San Diego (California) City Schools' Central Elementary School (a school restructuring process for all children); (4) the Glendale (California) Unified School District's Sheltered English Approach (an academic excellence program); (5) the Irvine (California) Unified School District's Sheltered English Program at the Secondary Schools; and (6) the San Diego (California) City Schools' Linda Vista Elementary School. These programs successfully address the needs of ethnically, linguistically, and culturally diverse students. (RLC)
