Junior High School Intensive Care and School Involvement Program (JHSICSIP). Evaluation. School Year 1990-91.
Tuck, Kathy D.
The District of Columbia Junior High School Intensive Care and School Involvement Program (JHSICSIP) was designed to improve achievement and attendance among at-risk students, with the ultimate goal of preventing school dropouts. This program completed its second year of implementation during school year 1990-91 and operated in six junior high schools. This program provided counseling and tutorial services through an affective team, an extended day tutorial service, a Congressional mentorship component, and a school involvement component in which each school participated in goal-oriented activities. This evaluation examined each program component with regard to implementation and short-term outcomes. A follow-up evaluation will be scheduled later in order to examine the long-term impact of the program with regard to dropout prevention. (The results of the evaluation are presented in this report. These sections are included: (1) implementation of counseling, tutorial, and mentorship activities; (2) improvement among student participants; (3) evaluation of the school improvement component; (4) evaluation of the summer component of the program; and (5) a summary of findings and recommendations.)
