Auxiliary Services for High Schools Bilingual Resource and Training Center (Project ASHS). Final Evaluation Report, 1992-93. OREA Report.
Auxiliary Services for High Schools, Bilingual Resource and Training Center (Project ASHS) was a federally funded project in its third year of operation in 1992-93. It functioned at 22 sites in the five boroughs of New York City, serving 3,972 limited-English-proficient students, an increase of over 600 students from the previous year. The target population included students who were over the traditional high school age and/or had inadequate previous schooling. Day and evening classes in English as a Second Language, native language arts, sheltered English (Chinese only), and high school equivalency test preparation were held in Spanish, Greek, Haitian, Vietnamese, and Chinese. Participating teachers had the opportunity to attend weekly staff development meetings and workshops on curriculum development and adaptation of instructional approaches. The project met its objectives for English language proficiency, English reading achievement, Spanish reading achievement, and mathematics instruction. It came close to meeting its objectives for promotion and equivalency test referrals. The major recommendation made for program improvement was to increase communication between day and evening staff. (MSE)
