Chapter 1 funds were used to fund four discrete components of the 1992 Chapter 1 summer programs in New York City. Each component targeted Chapter 1 eligible students who were found to be at risk of dropping out of school because of a lack of basic skills. The four programs were: (1) the Institute for Career Exploration (ICE); (2) the Basic Skills Program, which includes the Basic Skills Academy, the Comprehensive Competencies Program (CCP), and the Auxiliary Services for High Schools (ASHS) Basic Skills Program; (3) Basic Reading; and (4) Project Youth Opportunities Unlimited (YOU). Data were incomplete for the ICE, Basic Reading, the ASHS, and Project YOU. No data were available for the CCP. Thus, only limited aspects of the 1992 summer Chapter 1 program were evaluated. Programs were observed in 22 high schools. Standardized data collection procedures are to be developed for the next summer's data collection, and staff will be trained in the standardized procedures. Attendance and reading for pleasure will be emphasized in the next summer's programs. Two tables indicate the number of days attended by ICE participants and summarized pretest and posttest scores for 10 schools. (SLD)
