Project Guidance Oriented Acquisition of Learning Skills' (GOALS) high school students (Asian, European, Hispanic, Haitian) who scored at or below the 40th percentile on the Language Assessment Battery and were at risk of dropping out of school received instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL); bilingual and/or ESL content area courses; native language arts (NLA) in Chinese, Russian, and Spanish; and career related areas. The project planned activities for staff and curriculum development. Project GOALS, which is in its third year, met its objectives for ESL and curriculum development, for ESL reading, and for NLA. The project only partially met its objectives for vocational educational courses and for attendance and dropout reduction. Objectives for content area subjects were unable to be evaluated. Recommendations based on the projects' findings are included and data collection and analysis methods and instructional materials are appended. (JP)
