Alpha 1994-95 Program Evaluation Report.
The Alpha Program for the 1994-95 school year was operated for at-risk students by the School Board of Broward County (Florida) at two middle schools and one elementary school under the provisions of a grant from the Florida Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services. Services included academic instruction, parent involvement, group counseling, and individual counseling intended to prevent future dysfunctions such as alcohol and drug abuse, school dropout, and delinquency. A total of 103 fifth- and sixth-grade students identified as "at-risk" academically or behaviorally were served by a full-time family counselor, teacher, and teacher aide at each school. Evaluation found that the program was being operated at each of the sites in a way consistent with the 12 performance objectives and the program's stated purposes. Recommendations for program continuation and improvement are offered. Appendix 1 describes program components, list student risk factors, list the program performance objectives, and contains 10 graphic data exhibits. (Contains seven tables and six exhibits.)
