THE STATES REPORT--THE FIRST YEAR OF TITLE I, ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT OF 1965.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
THE OPERATIONS AND PROGRAMS CONDUCTED UNDER TITLE I OF THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT FOR THE EDUCATION OF DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN ARE DESCRIBED IN A SUMMARY OF THE INDIVIDUAL REPORTS SUBMITTED BY 50 STATES, THREE TERRITORIES, AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. THE REPORTS, PREPARED IN RESPONSE TO A U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION (USOE) REQUEST FOR THE STATE ANNUAL EVALUATION REPORTS, COVER TITLE I ACTIVITIES FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING JUNE 30, 1966. THE ACT PROVIDES FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO LOCAL EDUCATIONAL AGENCIES FOR SPECIAL PROGRAMS FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN IN AREAS HAVING HIGH CONCENTRATIONS OF LOW-INCOME FAMILIES. PROJECTS ARE PLANNED, ADMINISTERED, AND EXECUTED BY LOCAL SCHOOLS AFTER STATE APPROVAL. BROAD GUIDELINES FOR ADMINISTRATION OF THE FUNDS WERE GIVEN BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO INSURE THE MONEY WOULD BE SPENT FOR CHILDREN OF POVERTY AS CONGRESS INTENDED. ALTHOUGH NEARLY ALL OF THE STATES DISTRIBUTED THE USOE REPORTING FORMS TO LOCAL AGENCIES, THE RETURNS WERE NOT OF SUFFICIENT QUALITY TO MAKE AN ACCURATE EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TITLE I PROGRAMS. ALTHOUGH APPROXIMATELY 92 PERCENT OF THE LOCAL EDUCATIONAL AGENCIES MET THE CRITERIA FOR ELIGIBILITY, APPROXIMATELY 30 PERCENT OF THE ELIGIBLE AGENCIES DID NOT PARTICIPATE IN TITLE I. EXPENDITURES TOTALED ABOUT 84 PERCENT OF THE ALLOCATIONS. THE AVERAGE EXPENDITURE PER PUPIL OF THE 8.3 MILLION SERVED WAS $119, BUT RANGED FROM $25 TO $227. DETAILED INFORMATION ON USES OF THE ALLOTED FUNDS ARE INCLUDED IN THE REPORT. (AL)
