Hardnett Elementary School, 1970-71. Research and Development Report, Volume 5, Number 14, May 1972.
Blayton, Ethel; Ryals, Joseph
The Hardnett Elementary School, some of whose activities are funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, serves predominately low-income pupils. Since many of these pupils were identified as severely deficient in reading, the instructional program for the 1970-71 school year focused on improving achievement in this area. In this regard, the school staff with the assistance of the staff of the Division of Research and Development evaluated the reading program with reference to its impact on the performance of pupils. The primary goal of the program was to provide more relevant activities for the pupils such that improvement in reading could be evidenced by pupils' performance on standardized tests. To assist the regular school staff in meeting the educational needs of the pupils, Hardnett received the services of the following programs: (1) Title I Program; the school was eligible for such Title I program services as reading materials and three educational aides to work with the reading program. (2) Comprehensive Instructional Program (CIP); the primary purpose of the CIP was to guide and assist with the reading programs in schools where large percentages of pupils were below grade levels in reading. During the school year, Hardnett received reading materials along with the services of a CIP coordinator. (Author/JM)
