Mediax Associates, Inc., Westport, CT.
This evaluation of the Emergency School Aid Act (ESAA) Program in the District of Columbia public schools addresses four general issues: (1) the extent to which the program was implemented as planned; (2) the extent of participation by identified target populations; (3) assessments of the program by participating professional and other adult personnel; and (4) assessments by participating students and the educational growth of these students. In this context, the Career Education Project, the Two-W Project, the Special and Remedial Services Project, and the Round Meadow Outdoor Laboratory School Project (the four components of the ESAA Program) are described and appraised. Information presented and analyzed consists of: (1) records of interviews and field observations; (2) responses of 515 staff members, administrators, personnel from cooperating agencies, and parents; (3) reports and assessments by 585 student participants; and (4) pre and post academic achievement test scores for nearly 5,000 students. The overall conclusion offered is that the 1977-78 ESAA Program was effectively developed and had a positive impact on its target populations. (Author/GC)
