ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT OF 1965, TITLE I, STATE ANNUAL EVALUATION REPORT 1965-66.
Puerto Rico State Dept. of Education, Hato Rey.
PLANNING, IMPLEMENTATION, AND EVALUATION OF TITLE I PROJECTS IN PUERTO RICO EMANATED FROM THE COMMONWEALTH DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION. THROUGHOUT THE VARIOUS PLASES OF TITLE I ACTIVITIES PROJECT DIRECTORS WORKED CLOSELY WITH THIS CENTRAL OFFICE. OBSERVATIONS, ATTENDANCE RECORDS, INTERVIEWS, AND QUESTIONNAIRES WERE THE PRIMARY EVALUATIVE TECHNIQUES USED BY 34 OF THE 42 PROJECTS. THE MAJOR PROBLEM AREAS WERE IN CONTRACTING FOR PERSONNEL, IN AUTHORIZING ADEQUATE SALARIES, AND IN BUYING AND DISTRIBUTING MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT. THE IMPLEMENTATION OF PROPOSALS AND EVALUATIVE EFFORTS WERE HAMPERED BY ADMINISTRATIVE DIFFICULTIES. COORDINATION WITH OTHER FEDERAL PROJECTS AND WITH NONPUBLIC SCHOOLS WAS NOT A PROBLEM. THE MAIN USES FOR TITLE I FUNDS WERE (1) TO PROVIDE MORE SCHOOL HOURS, (2) TO IMPROVE THE PROFESSIONAL PREPARATION AND QUALITY OF THE STAFF, AND (3) TO OFFER RECREATIONAL, CULTURAL, AND KINDERGARTEN PROGRAMS. OTHER ACTIVITIES INCLUDED (1) SCHOOL PLANT IMPROVEMENT, (2) CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT, (3) SUPERVISED STUDY CENTERS, (4) PROVISION OF MATERIALS, EQUIPMENT, AND SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION, AND (5) SPECIAL SERVICES FOR THE RETARDED. INCLUDED IN THIS REPORT ARE A LIST OF MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENTS, A SECTION OF TABULAR DATA, AND SUMMARIES OF THE RATED EFFECTIVENESS OF PARTICULAR TYPES OF PROJECTS. (NH)
