An Evaluation of Summer Enrichment Programs of the Public Schools of the District of Columbia, Summer 1969. Final Report.
District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the 1969 summer programs for the District of Columbia Publc Schools. These programs were funded from the regular appropriated District of Columbia budget. There were 23 different programs, involving approximately 12,980 students and using 675,000 dollars of appropriated District of Columbia Public School funds. All proposed programs were reviewed by a summer planning committee and assigned different levels of priority. Programs determined to be of first priority were approved for funding. These programs were directed by the following operating departments: Elementary Education, Junior-Senior High School, Vocational Education, Model School Division, Pupil Personnel Services, and Urban Service Corps. In order to carry out the evaluation, data were gathered within the framework of a non-statistical model. This information included: background and demographic data; purpose of program; objectives; description and procedures; results; major strengths; problems encountered; and, recommendations. Virtually all Project Directors reported serious limitations in recruitment of students and staff and problems in over-all program planning and design. The delay in the initial approval of the programs was a result of the time at which the funds became available. Every effort should be made to move the funding date to a point earlier in the school year. (Author/JM)
