Oregon Small Schools Program: A Title III Project. Independent Evaluation Report, 1972.
Miller, Donald F.
An Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title III project, the 1971-72 Oregon Small Schools Program (OSSP) objectives were (1) to increase member schools receptivity to new and better ideas in education; (2) to implement new programs and apply new techniques consistent with the Oregon Board of Education priority objectives and with the special needs of their districts; and (3) to obtain and keep the resources and information necessary to carry out those innovative programs and to apply those new techniques. The format to this report divides the evaluation into three sections, each section describing the transactions and outcomes as they relate to one specific OSSP objective. Additionally, Educational Coordinates Northwest has included a summary of its third party evaluation of the Teacher Incentive Grant Program (TIG). The TIG, also funded through Title III, ESEA, made grants available to classroom teachers in order to encourage instructional personnel to develop or implement alternative techniques or procedures of instruction, to stimulate the development of courses or parts of courses, and to improve instructional effectiveness of efficiency in the elementary and secondary schools in Oregon. In 60% of the projects, both principals and grantees indicated that the local TIG project brought about a variety of changes in the instructional activities of other teachers in the schools involved.
