Scott, Kenneth J.
This final performance report for the Sanford Library Association's Project Literacy U.S. (PLUS) begins with quantitative data. Background information on the community is then provided. Actual accomplishments are compared to project objectives for 1991-92 in the following areas: (1) continuation of individualized literacy instruction or promotion to further education of illiterate and functionally illiterate adults; (2) recruitment and instruction in individualized basic literacy skills programs of illiterate and functionally illiterate adults from both the general population and the expanded target population of elderly, homeless, or handicapped adults, adult members of racial/ethnic/gender minorities, and adults from surrounding communities with limited library resources; (3) retention and training of current volunteer tutors; (4) recruitment and training of new volunteer tutors; (5) provision of a minimum of one hour of instruction per week to each participant; (6) raised reading level of 90% of the participants completing their Individualized Educational Plan (IEP); (7) purchase and circulation of high-interest/low-level and other resource materials; and (8) increased hours for the project coordinator and clerk/typist. Proposed and actual expenditures are compared. A narrative section describes activities undertaken, the library's role, organizations involved, facilities used, and project impact of the project. Attachments include a tutor/student record form and sample newsletter. (MES)
