TITLE I ESEA ANNUAL EVALUATION REPORT, 1965-1966.
Mississippi State Dept. of Education, Jackson.
COMPENSATORY EDUCATION ACTIVITIES IN MISSISSIPPI ARE EVALUATED IN THIS REPORT. IT IS FELT THAT DESPITE SUCH OPERATIONAL PROBLEMS AS A SHORTAGE OF INSTRUCTIONAL, SUPERVISORY, AND CLERICAL STAFF, TITLE I PROJECTS HAD CONSIDERABLE IMPACT ON THEIR PARTICIPANTS. IT IS REPORTED THAT THE LEVEL OF ATTAINMENT FOR ALL PUPILS INCREASED AT LEAST TWO MONTHS ABOVE WHAT NORMALLY WOULD BE EXPECTED FOR THE PARTICULAR TIME PERIOD. SCHOOL ATTENDANCE RATES AND SCHOOL HOLDING POWER WERE ALSO IMPROVED. (NO DATA IS GIVEN IN CONNECTION WITH THESE FINDINGS.) THE PROJECTS ATTEMPTED TO SATISFY THE MOST PREVALENT NEEDS OF TITLE I PUPILS FOR READING MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT, PUPIL-TEACHER RATIO REDUCTIONS, VOCATIONAL TRAINING, HEALTH SERVICES AND GUIDANCE SERVICES. IN ADDITION TITLE I PROJECTS PROVIDED TEACHER AIDES, SPEECH THERAPISTS AND OTHER SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHERS, INSERVICE TRAINING, CURRICULUM ENRICHMENT, AND FOOD AND LIBRARY SERVICES. SUMMER SCHOOL AND READING PROGRAMS WERE REPORTED AS HAVING THE GREATEST IMPACT ON TITLE I PUPILS. THE REPORT DESCRIBES INNOVATIVE PROGRAMS IN SOME DETAIL AND PRESENTS TABULAR DATA ON THE PROJECTS' ACTIVITIES. INCLUDED AMONG THE DATA IS A SECTION SPECIFICALLY PERTAINING TO GUIDANCE SERVICES. ANALYSIS OF THESE DATA REVEALED THAT, DESPITE THE HIRING OF 42 ADDITIONAL COUNSELORS, COUNSELING SERVICES WERE STILL INADEQUATE. (LB)
