Chapter One in Ohio: Education Consolidation and Improvement Act, 18th Annual Evaluation Report, Fiscal 1983.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.
This report summarizes recent compensatory education program activities in Ohio, which were funded through Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act. It presents and discusses statistics for the 1982-83 school year, participation trends, instructional impact, expenditure and staffing patterns, inservice training, parent involvement, and five-year trends. The first part of the report describes basic Chapter 1 services. Participants in basic programs are said to have included students at every grade level, but a majority were in Grades 1-3. The standardized test scores reported document gains in basic skills (reading and mathematics) for most participants. Expenditure patterns show that reading programs absorbed the largest share of funding, and teachers' salaries constituted the greatest single expense. Parents' advisory role is said to have significantly increased the effectiveness of Chapter 1 in improving student achievement. The remainder of the report describes Chapter 1 services provided for the children of migratory agricultural workers, and those handicapped, neglected, and delinquent children being educated in State agency schools. Finally, major services provided by the Ohio Department of Education to local school districts and to State agency schools are outlined. (KH)
