A Title I Refinement: Alaska.
Hazelton, Alexander E.; And Others
Through joint planning with a number of school districts and the Region X Title I Technical Assistance Center, and with the help of a Title I Refinement grant, Alaska has developed a system of data storage and retrieval using microcomputers that assists small school districts in the evaluation and reporting of their Title I programs. Although this system serves as a vehicle for federal and state reporting, its primary function is to help school districts evaluate their own Title I programs. The microcomputer system utilizes database management techniques, which not only reduce storage requirements, but allow for ad hoc reporting by clerical personnel. This ad hoc reporting capability frees small school districts from being dependent upon having access to programming expertise for producing new or one-time reports. The use of technology in Alaska is described, as is the Title I refinement application program and how it interfaces with the database management system. Examples of ad hoc and standard reports are described. (Author/GK)
