ESEA Title I Components. Executive Abstracts.
Los Angeles Unified School District, CA.
The activities evaluated in this report were in progress during the school year 1970-71, the second of a 3-year cycle for ESEA Title I programs in elementary and secondary schools in Los Angeles. The components examined are instruction (reading, language, and arithmetic), auxiliary services, intergroup relations, parent involvement, and staff development. A section on nonpublic schools examines instruction and supportive services. Each abstract contains a description of the subject matter, the time period covered, the objectives, the evaluation strategy used, results, conclusions, and recommendations, as well as data on the number of people and schools involved and the approximate cost. Results in the elementary schools indicated that the significant reading and arithmetic gains made in the first year of the program were not easy to duplicate in the second year because of the high achievement base established during the previous year, but results in some schools showed that gains can be achieved by a concentration of resources averaging $300 per pupil over the resources used in the regular program. Parent involvement and activities in intergroup relations and staff development had a supportive effect throughout the year. Junior high school pupils consistenly exceeded their previous year's gains and uniformly surpassed their non-ESEA school mates. Notable increases in the number of staff conferences with pupils and parents and with other staff members were reported. (MBM)
