Summary

A series of partnerships are expended and developed in this proposal to achieve the goals set forth by CAPP. Language arts, science and social science curricula alignment to State Standards in the Farmersville Unified School District (FUSD) K-12 will be completed by May 2003, based on the work of vertical teams of High School (HS) and Junior High School (JHS) teachers. All teachers in the FUSD will be equipped to teach literacy skills through their academic subject area as a result of CLAD, BCLAD, SB1969 or SDAIE certification by May 2004. Students who are Limited English Proficiency Learners (LEP) will be assessed and identified in JHS and provided mentors. Tenth and 11th grade students who fail the HSEE will be grouped by class, in house system, where they will receive intensive, assessment based, academic skill remediation. All students in the JHS and HS will be taught the learning, time management and goal setting skills inherent in the AVID program. All students will have the opportunity to gain the necessary psycho-social and academic preparation for college. Parenting Successful Students is an innovative program based on research that indicates the positive effect parental involvement and support can have on children's academic performance. The attempt to re-engage parents in a partnership with teachers and students who are predominantly Hispanic, in an impoverished rural setting is the focus of the research component in this proposal.
