This report is a descriptive analysis of the migrant education Even Start Literacy Program and of families served in 1995-96. The 9 migrant Even Start projects funded in 1995-96 are described and compared to 563 reporting projects nationwide (out of 576 total). Nine state educational agencies received grants to help parents of currently migratory children become full partners in their children's education, assist these children in reaching their potential as learners, and provide literacy training to parents. Migrant projects averaged 103 enrolled families and 63 participating families, and provided early childhood education, parenting education, adult basic education, ged preparation, and English as a second language. Families averaged 6.2 members, with at least 1 child aged 0-7 (as required); 55 percent of families had annual incomes below $9,000; 71 percent did not speak English at home; and 87 percent of parents lacked a high school diploma or ged. Chapter 1 introduces the migrant Even Start Program. Chapter 2 describes project characteristics: funding, number of families served, rural/urban location, availability of nonproject services, staffing, staff qualifications, inservice training, agency collaboration, needs for support services, barriers to implementation, project needs for technical assistance, recruitment strategies, and content and intensity of services. Chapter 3 describes participant characteristics: family structure, size, ethnicity, economic status, and length of U.S. residence; parents' education, English language proficiency, and employment status; and nonproject services received. Chapter 4 outlines participation rates by parents and children in various services, prevalence of special needs children, retention rates, and parent educational and employment status at year end. Contains 48 data tables. (Author/SV)
School-based drug prevention programs : a longitudinal study in selected school districts : executive summary : final report by E. Suyapa Silvia( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Establishing school-based drug prevention programs was the aim of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1986 (dfsca). A summary of the findings of a longitudinal study of dfsca is presented in this report. Revitalized in 1995 as the Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (sdfsca), the Act's scope was extended to include prevention of violence. Programs in 19 school districts were studied over four years by repeatedly surveying a cohort of students, beginning when the students were in grades five and six. The study's primary purpose was to assess whether drug prevention programs make a difference for youth; and, if so, what strategies were most successful. Findings reported under "Student Behaviors, Beliefs, and Attitudes about Drugs," include comparison of the two groups' responses over time, profiles of users and non-users, and "What Students Say About Drugs." Under "Home School, and Community Risk Indicators" are topics on school environment and violence; under "Drug Prevention Programs and Their Effects on Student Outcomes" are findings on program consistency and effectiveness, student participation, and "Outcomes of Prevention Programs." A summary of study findings, conclusions, data analyses, a discussion of implications, a bibliography, and a "Glossary of Analysis Variables" are provided. (Emk)

The continuing development of local Tech-Prep initiatives by Marsha Silverberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data from national Tech-Prep surveys that were completed by more than 800 Tech-Prep consortium coordinators in fall 1993 and/or fall 1994 were analyzed to assess the emergence of Tech-Prep at the state and local levels. It was discovered that, between 1993 and 1994, the number of Tech-Prep consortia nationwide increased from 812 to 953, the percentage of consortia able to identify and count students participating in Tech-Prep increased from 29% to 53%, and the number of students identified as Tech-Prep participants increased by 150%. Tech-Prep students appeared to be achieving intermediate outcomes in greater numbers. An estimated 97% of Tech-Prep seniors graduated from high school in spring 1994 (versus 94% in 1993), and approximately 56% of 1994 Tech-Prep high school graduates entered postsecondary education or training the following fall. Between 1993 and 1994, Tech-Prep consortia continued to lay important groundwork for transformation to school-to-work systems; however, applied academic curricula, articulation agreements, and career development activities were implemented in only a relatively small proportion of consortium districts and schools. Tech-Prep progress on school-to-work features was most evident in reports of increased school-industry collaboration. (Contains 27 tables/figures) (mn)
