A Study of Title III Projects, Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (P.L. 83-531) (89-10), after the Approved Funding Periods.
Polemeni, Anthony John
To determine the continuation rate of Title III projects after termination of Federal funding in December 1967, questionnaire response data from directors of 149 projects were analyzed, and a study was made of the respective project proposals on file at the Title III bureau of USOE. For purposes of analysis, projects were categorized by operational status after withdrawal of funds: those immediately terminated, those continuing for a short period, and those remaining operative. Statistical analysis revealed no significant change in the relationship between the status of a terminated project and any of the five selected variables: (1) type of project (innovative, exemplary, adaptive); (2) geographical location; (3) size of student population served; (4) amount of Title III funds expended; and (5) percent of school district financial contribution. The study concludes with 11 recommendations for increasing the rate of continuation. Abstracts of the 149 projects are appended. (JK)
