An Evaluation of Non-Public School Participation in District Decentralized ESEA Title I Programs.
In the 1969-70 school year, 26 of the 30 local school districts and the three demonstration school districts in New York City submitted proposals for the organization of projects to be funded under ESEA Title I programs. An analysis of the district proposals, supplemented by field investigation, indicated that 21 of the local school districts had, in fact, provided for some degree of non-public school participation in the decentralized projects for which requests for funding had been submitted. Moreover, such participation was noted in one district in one program in which non-public school involvement had not been envisaged. The three demonstration districts made no provision for non-public school participation in their decentralized projects. In all, the 21 school districts cited a total of 67 projects that entailed some measure of non-public school participation. There were the following types of projects: after school study centers, guidance programs, remedial reading programs, paraprofessional assistance, homework helper programs, in addition to bilingual, trip, and creative arts programs.
