Education Consolidation and Improvement Act, Chapter 2: Evaluation Report 1988-89. Document No. 95-01/90/06/04.
Orr, Walter L., Comp.
Evaluation findings on the effectiveness of Chapter 2-assisted programs in Delaware are summarized in this report. The first section provides a financial overview of 1988-89 programs, comparing the proposed budget with actual expenditures. The second section focuses on the use of state "set-aside" funds, identifying those allocated for special projects and describing the Chapter 2-supported functions and activities of the Department of Public Instruction. Program operation and management are summarized by school district in the third section. Data sources include fiscal year 1989 Chapter 2 applications, responses to a previous survey, and conversations with program directors. Five areas are examined: consultation, needs assessment, program description, evaluation, and general program statements. Section 4 summarizes the use of funds in each district and reviews two sample district programs. The conclusion is that funds were used to meet diverse local needs such as improving parent, teacher, administrator, and private school participation and reducing paperwork. A small portion of state "set-aside" funds were used for program administration, but most were used to support statewide initiatives, for technical assistance, and for general support activities of the Department of Public Instruction. Three figures and seven tables are included. (LMI)
