Evaluation of the Effectiveness of Parts B and C of the Title IV Program in the District of Columbia Public Schools.
This report describes the results of an evaluation of Title IV programs carried out between 1979 and 1982 in the District of Columbia Public Schools. Evaluation activities included: examination of proposals, project evaluations, and administrative budgets; construction and distribution of questionnaires to State Educational Agency (SEA) administrators, project directors and other consumers; data analysis; and the writing of the final report. Program effectiveness was measured in six areas: (1) the extent to which educational needs identified in the State plan are met by Parts A and B of Title IV; (2) the quality and effectiveness of administrative activities undertaken by the SEA, such as project application review, technical assistance, dissemination, and project monitoring; (3) improvement of educational priorities within Local Education Agencies (LEAs); (4) incorporation of successful practices by LEAs; (5) use of funds for various authorized program activities; and (6) the extent to which the educational needs that prompted the project were still viewed as important by the LEA when Federal funding concluded. Findings show that the Title IV B and C programs were effectively administered and had a positive impact on public and private schools over the 3-year period considered. (Author/WAM)
