TITLE I 89-10 EVALUATION REPORT, 1965-66.
Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise.
THIS REPORT ON THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT TITLE I PROJECTS FOR DISADVANTAGED YOUTH IN IDAHO NOTES THAT THE MOST PRESSING PUPIL NEEDS WERE IMPROVED SKILLS IN READING, LIBRARY USE, MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE, OFFICE MACHINE OPERATION, HOME ECONOMICS, AND AUTO MECHANICS. MORE INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION AND IMPROVED PHYSICAL HEALTH WERE OTHER IMPORTANT NEEDS. THE EVALUATION DOES NOT FOLLOW THE OUTLINE FOR PROGRAM EVALUATIONS BY THE OFFICE OF EDUCATION BECAUSE IDAHO DID NOT PREPARE GUIDELINES OR CONTRACT FOR EVALUATIONS AND WAS UNABLE TO ESTABLISH BASELINE DATA. THE MAJOR PROBLEMS REPORTED BY THE LOCAL EDUCATIONAL AGENCIES WERE DIFFICULTIES IN PROGRAM EVALUATIONS, LACK OF SCHOOL FACILITIES, A SHORTAGE OF QUALIFIED STAFF, INSUFFICIENT TITLE I FUNDS, AND INABILITY TO COMPLETE APPLICATIONS. THE MOST PREVALENT TITLE I ACTIVITIES INCLUDED ORGANIZING READING IMPROVEMENT CLASSES, ESTABLISHING INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA CENTERS, IMPROVING OR ESTABLISHING LIBRARIES, OFFERING PHYSICAL FITNESS PROGRAMS, AND HIRING SUBPROFESSIONAL PERSONNEL AND AIDES. SOME INNOVATIVE PROJECTS WERE THE TRAINING OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AS TEACHER AIDES AND TWO SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAMS WHICH USED AN INDIVIDUAL INTEREST APPROACH. THE DOCUMENT CONCLUDES WITH THE NOTE THAT IDAHO'S SCHOOLS HAVE NEEDED FUNDS FOR A LONG TIME. (NH)
