New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment.
The Students Upgrading through Computer and Career Education Systems Services (Project SUCCESS) program in New York City was evaluated under Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Project SUCCESS targeted three high schools with a recent influx of immigrant students. The project's design included instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL), native Language arts (NLA) in Chinese and Spanish, and bilingual instruction in content area subjects. The design also incorporated career orientation services, academic advising, and college consultation for target students, as well as summer enrichment programing. In 1991-92, the project enrolled 438 limited English proficient high school students. Project SUCCESS was fully implemented and met its objectives for Chinese NLA and career development, as well as for Spanish NLA, parental involvement, and staff awareness of student needs. Objectives for ESL, staff development, attitude change, and content area subjects were not fully met. Dropout prevention and attendance objectives were partially met. Recommendations are made for the following year to meet all program objectives. Appendix A describes data collection and analysis, and Appendix B describes instructional materials. (SLD)
