Students Upgrading through Computer and Career Education System Services (Project SUCCESS) was an Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title VII-funded project in its fourth year of operation. The project operated at two high schools in Brooklyn and one in Manhattan (New York). In the 1993-94 school year, the project served 393 students of limited English proficiency who had Spanish or Chinese as their native language. They received instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL), native language arts (NLA), and the content areas of mathematics, science, and social studies. Staff development and parent participation components were included. Project SUCCESS met its objectives for Chinese NLA content area, American culture and citizenship, cultural pride, attitude toward school, career development, attendance, dropout rate, staff development, and curriculum development. While the ESL objective was partially met, Spanish NLA and staff enrollment objectives were not. Administering an assessment to native Spanish speakers and encouraging more staff enrollment in college-level courses are recommended. Seven tables present evaluation findings. Appendixes list instructional materials and class schedules and contain the Likert scales (in English and Spanish) from the evaluation. (Author/SLD)
