Weaknesses in School Districts' Implementation of the Emergency School Assistance Program.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
The Emergency School Assistance Program provides grants to school districts to defray the costs of meeting special problems arising from the desegregation of elementary and secondary schools. This report deals with the second of two phases of the review of this program, made at 28 of a sample of 50 participating school districts. The objective of the second phase was to find out whether the school districts were: (1) accomplishing the program activities as described in their program applications; (2) using their grant funds to defray the costs attributable to special problems arising from the desegregation of their schools; and, (3) complying with the program's regulations and with the assurances concerning program activities stated in their applications. The records of the school districts and selected schools within the district relating to their program grants were examined, and the findings were discussed with school district officials, school principals and teachers, members of the biracial and student program advisory committees, and officials of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare.
