Special Competition Bilingual Enrichment Academic Russian Program is a federally-funded program that served 623 native Russian-speaking, limited-English-proficient (LEP) students in nine public and two private high schools in New York City in 1992-93, its first year of operation. Students received instruction in English as a second language (ESL), native language arts (NLA), mathematics, science, social studies, and business skills. Staff development and parental involvement and educational activities were also important program components. The program met all objectives in ESL, NLA, student performance on state competency and achievement tests, mathematics, science, social studies, business, career awareness, attitudes toward the Russian language, attendance, and parental involvement. Recommendations for program improvement include: exploration of additional techniques to increase student subject area skills at selected sites, possibly by augmenting peer and paraprofessional tutoring and through computer instruction; development of ties with business and community organizations and enlist their support; and holding parent involvement activities at locations and times more convenient for parents.
