The Evaluation of the School-Community Agents Project, 1970-1971.
The four initial general goals of the projects, funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, are: (1) to raise the achievement level of the target group children; (2) to increase the overall participation of parents in school related affairs; (3) to attempt to influence parents' competence in dealing with their everyday problems; and, (4) to increase the staff's involvement in the community's life. The evaluation design focuses on three sources of information: (1) student activities, including tutorial services; (2) student scores from the Title I testing program of May 1971; and, (3) parent activities. Only about half of the agents were successful in providing information on their effects relating to activities and services provided the students and the students' parents in the target groups. The changes in achievement level of the target group students could not be assessed because of the lack of pre- and posttest scores, at the elementary level. Almost two-thirds of the parents of Target Group students participated in one or more activities. Over three-fourths of the students, in 18 schools, participated in one or more activities not directly a part of their classroom instruction. (Author/JM)
