Title I ESEA, Fiscal Year 1976. Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Massachusetts State Dept. of Education, Boston. Bureau of Curriculum Services.
This statistical report reviews Massachusetts Title I projects in terms of: the population served; participating schools; amounts of staff training, community and parental involvement; and effects of the programs on educational achievement. The format is largely tables and figures interspersed with textual presentation of the same data. Title I basic statistics include: community participation, allocations by county, number of projects, student participation by grade level, type of staff and project academic activities. Private as well as public school students in Title I projects are also enumerated, the former amounting to nearly 20 percent of those reported. Guidelines for such schools are presented. Funding of and participation in staff training programs, topics covered, and characteristics of training personnel are also reviewed. Community and parent involvement are reported to have been high, over 97% of the Title I projects having active Parent Advisory Councils. Achievement scores show a slightly higher gain in reading and significantly higher gain in mathematics among Title I students than among non Title I participants. (Author/KR)
