State Compensatory Education Annual Report, 1982-83.
Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta. Office of Instructional Services.
This document compiles compensatory education program data submitted to the Georgia State Department by local school systems in their 1982-83 annual reports. The first section describes state administration of grant funds (i.e., appropriations bills, procedures for allocating funds, program plans, and program monitoring). Specifically mentioned are the effects on local programs of reducing funds for elementary children and appropriating funds for students who failed the tenth grade Georgia Basic Skills Test. The next section provides an overview of local school system annual reports. Information is given on personnel hired; numbers of students served; service delivery models; state expenditures for personnel, materials and staff development; program funds provided by local school districts; average number of hours of weekly instruction; and adult/child ratio. The last section gives information about program effectiveness. Third- through eighth-grade student gains in mathematics and reading are summarized for those school systems reporting student achievement in terms of Normal Curve Equivalents. Tenth-grade student gains are assessed in terms of the numbers of students who were able to pass the Basic Skills Test after compensatory education. (CB)
