Implementing Chapter 1 Student Program Improvement in State and Local Educational Agencies.
This paper presents a general model that state and local educational agencies can follow in implementing Chapter 1 requirements for student program improvement. The model follows Chapter 1 statute and regulations, focuses efforts at program improvement on the educational needs of individual students, and is general enough that it can be adapted to the particular needs of schools and children in any local educational agency. The first part of the paper suggests administrative procedures for state and local educational agencies in implementing the requirements for student program improvement including the following five steps: (1) identify; (2) assess; (3) plan; (4) implement; and (5) monitor. A second part presents an assessment-action model focused on five principles with tips for application of those principles to help school staffs plan and implement student program improvement. The third part presents the following six monitoring and recording tools that local agencies can use to record assessment results and recommendations for individual students and for reporting to state educational agencies: (1) Student Program Implementation Check; (2) Numbers of Students Identified for Program Improvement after One Year; (3) Local Education Agency Aggregate Summary of Students Identified for Program Improvement; (4) Description of Procedures for Student Program Improvement; (5) Summary of Assessment Result and Recommendations for Program Improvement; and (6) Assessment Record and Recommendations for Program Improvement. The paper includes 12 references. (JB)
