The ESAA Basic and Pilot Programs in Region II: Volume I--Administration.
Ferrara, Lynette; Lanoff, Sheri B.
This study reports on the administration of the Emergency School Aid Act (ESAA) Basic and Pilot programs in New Jersey and New York. An overview of the Act and the criteria that desegregating schools in the region must meet in order to qualify for ESAA funds is provided. Findings regarding program operations, including application preparation, grant competition, project monitoring and technical assistance, are presented. These findings are based upon assessments of: (1) how ESAA program operations affected the decision to apply for a Basic or Pilot grant and the content and dollar value of the proposed projects; (2) how program operations affected the selection of grantees, the content and dollar value of the funded projects, and the timing of the grant award; and (3) limitations of the procedures used to monitor and to provide technical assistance to the projects. Appended are data on minority pupil compositions of districts that applied for a Basic or Pilot grant in Region II and on desegregation-related district characteristics. Data sources are also listed.
