First-year outcomes of the 1990-91 Project Achieve in 32 New York City public high schools are presented in this paper. Project goals are to improve student performance outcomes and to increase successful school completions. Methodology involved analysis of quantitative data from all participating 32 high schools and central data files. Findings of a qualitative study are presented in a separate report. Findings indicate that the percentage of schools that met particular objectives in 1990-91 varied by grade and objective. For example, over 81 percent of the schools met the dropout objective and over 34 percent of 9th grades and 62 percent of 10th grades met the attendance objective. About half of the schools met their credit accumulation objectives in both the 9th and 10th grades. Finally, Regents Competency Test (RCT) data indicate that about 40 percent of the schools achieved their objective in reading, 59 percent met the objective in writing, but only 16 percent met the RCT objective in math. Eight tables are included. (LMI)
