Evaluation of ESEA Title I Programs for the District of Columbia, Summer 1967. Final Report.
Dailey, John T.; Neyman, Clinton A., Jr.
These studies were undertaken to evaluate the 1967 summer school programs in the District of Columbia funded under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. There were 18 different Title I programs, involving approximately 15,000 students. There were two main aspects of the evaluation: (1) the statistical aspects included a record of student participation in the various programs, and information about the programs obtained from certain sections of the following data-gathering instruments: Student Evaluation Forms, Administrator Questionnaires, Teacher Questionnaires, and Student Questionnaires; and, (2) the nonstatistical aspects included discussion of the summer programs with administrative personnel, site visits to the program activities, and information about the programs and their operation from administrators, teachers, and students, obtained from the questionnaires and other sources. The various Title I summer programs were assigned three levels of priority. Among "priority one" programs, making definite contributions toward better schooling of the students from low-income areas, were Instrumental Music, Model School Division Junior High School and Teacher Training Institute, Primary Summer School, Social Adjustment, and Summer Camping. "Priority two" programs had merit but were not as significant as "priority one" programs. "Priority three" programs were low-priority. (Author/JM)
