Title IX Program Evaluation: Corresponding with FY 98 Application for Grants. Albuquerque Public Schools, 1997-98.
Title IX and Johnson O'Malley services were provided to 1,495 Native American students at 10 Albuquerque (New Mexico) elementary, middle, and high schools and the Homework Center during the 1997-98 school year. The five goals of the Title IX program were to provide: (1) intervention assistance for students, in which students, parents, and staff set goals in areas such as attendance and behavior problems; (2) tutoring assistance, which focused on language arts and math at the elementary level and added science and social studies at the secondary level; (3) student participation in cultural, social, or academic activities to promote good citizenship, community service, and personal responsibility; (4) parent participation in cultural, social, or academic activities, promoted through announcements in newsletters, letters sent home with students, and announcements at parent meetings; and (5) professional development in sensitive cultural issues that impact Native American student performance. In intervention and tutoring assistance, each school level surpassed its goal. The homework center was most effective, followed by assistance at the middle and elementary school levels. Students reported 99.5 percent of the time that the social, cultural, and academic activities were beneficial. Because of low survey response rates, parent participation was difficult to evaluate, but 88 percent of the 18 respondents thought the activities were beneficial to students. Ninety-eight percent of respondents thought that the professional development was somewhat beneficial. (TD)
