East Environmental Science Magnet High School: 1990-1991. Formative Evaluation.
Seever, Margaret
This report presents a formative evaluation of the East Environmental Science Magnet High School in the Kansas City School District, Missouri. It presents data collected throughout the program's first year, including student demographics; program implementation information; achievement data; and perceptions of staff, parents, and students. An evaluation of demographic data show that East failed to approach the 60/40 minority/non-minority ratio guidelines by the required 2 percent in grades 9, 10, and 12. It is reported that site and classroom visits to East together with documentation of student participation in field trips, clubs/organizations, and recycling projects reveal evidence of implementation of the magnet theme of environmental science. A summary of the achievement test scores appear in table form along with clarifying information. Teacher and student perceptions of the program were mixed while parent response to a phone survey was positive. Parent, teacher, and student responses are presented in tables 11-13. A final section draws conclusions about the program and makes recommendations for program improvement. (MCO)
