State Urban Education Quality Incentive Programs; Summaries and Classified Data.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Div. of Funded Programs.
Section 3602 of the New York State Education Law provides supplementary means of improving the teacher-learning situation for those students having special educational needs associated with poverty. Funds are provided on an annual basis, 1970-71 being the third one for receipt of such funds by New York City. This bulletin contains summaries of only those proposals that have been approved and implemented. Monies are allocated by the State on a formula basis, and the Board of Education similarly suballocates the major portion of its allotment. New York City's total allocation was 48,029,740 dollars for fiscal year July 1, 1970-June 30, 1971. Community districts were advised that their allocations could be appropriated as they wished, for Quality Incentive Programs and/or Community Education Center Programs. A total of 33,335,473 dollars was allocated by Districts to Quality Incentive Projects. These are planned by professional and community representatives to correct educational, motivational and/or cultural deficiencies of the target population. No program may become operative until the proposal has been approved by the State Division of Urban Education. The budgets as indicated in the summaries are the amounts that were budgeted when the proposals were submitted. (Author/JM)
