Project Porvenir. Final Evaluation Report, 1992-93. OERA Report.
Project Porvenir was a federally-funded program serving 392 native Spanish-speaking, limited-English-proficient students in four Bronx (New York) elementary schools in 1992-93, its fifth and final year of operation. Participating students were general education students in grades 3-6 and special education students. Students received instruction in career education in their English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) and native language arts (NLA) classes. Staff development, parent involvement in school-related activities, and curriculum development were also important program components. The program met its objectives for English language development, career-education, non-academic mainstreaming, attendance of general education students, staff development, curriculum development, and parental involvement. It did not meet its objectives for NLA, academic mainstreaming of special education students, and attendance of special education students. (Author/MSE)
