Harmony in Career Learning and Scholastic System (Project HI-CLASS). Final Evaluation Report 1992-93. OREA Report.
Duque, Diana L.
Harmony in Career Learning and Scholastic System (Project HI-CLASS) was a Transitional Bilingual Education Title VII-funded program in its fifth and final year in 1992-93. The project offered instructional and support services to 641 students of limited English proficiency (LEP) at three sites, all of which had many immigrant students, in Manhattan and Queens (New York). Project HI-CLASS provided individualized instruction focusing on basic skills, career development, and preoccupational training, with instruction in English as a second language (ESL) and native language arts. Bilingual instruction was offered for content areas. A summer program for remediation, staff development, ESL and high school equivalency classes for parents, and a Parent Advisory Committee were additional program components. The program met many of its objectives, but it did not meet some objectives with regard to ESL, native language arts, and some content areas. The project director reported that the instructional objectives were unreasonably high, and because the program was in its final year no recommendations were made. Eleven tables present evaluation findings. Three appendixes describe instructional materials and schedules and present evaluation questionnaires. (SLD)
