Augustin, Marc A.
The Higher Achievement and Improvement Through Instruction with Computers and Scholarly Transition And Resource Systems program (Project HAITI STARS), a federally-funded bilingual education program, served 425 students of limited English proficiency at three high schools in New York City during its fifth contract year. Students received instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL), native language arts (NLA), mathematics, science, social studies, and computer science. Staff development and parent involvement through ESL classes and field trips were also program components. The project met its objectives for curriculum development, Haitian/French language arts, referral to remedial programs, attendance, staff awareness of pupil needs and problems, and grade retention/placement in special education. It partially met its objectives for gifted and talented programs/enrollment in postsecondary education, content area subjects, and staff development for continuing education. It failed to meet its objective for ESL. Achievement of the Spanish NLA objective was not possible due to lack of data. (MSE)
