The Neglected and Delinquent/High School Institutionalized Facilities Program, funded by the New York State Education Department under Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act (ECIA) of 1981, provided diagnostic and prescriptive approaches to teaching prevocational, vocational/occupational, and life skills to 1,076 high school students incarcerated or in pretrial facilities on Riker's Island, in drug rehabilitation facilities, and in high school equivalency preparation centers in the boroughs on Manhattan, the Bronx, and Queens. The program was implemented as planned at eight sites. Facilities, staffing, inservice training, and assessment and testing materials were generally adequate. The use of computers continued to be especially effective in implementing the curriculum. On-going contact between program and agency staff was viewed as an important factor in success. Eighty-two percent of the students achieved 75 percent of their objectives in vocational/life skills, an increase of 19 percent over the previous year. In the area of prevocational skills, 76 percent of the students achieved the goal program-wide. The Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment (OREA) recommends additional computer hardware and software wherever possible, additional staff training in computer technology, and enhanced inservice training through program-wide conferences. A project evaluation report form is included. (Author/SLD)
