Chapter 1/Chapter 1 Migrant Evaluation Report, 1994-95. Publication No. 94.03.
Curry, Janice; And Others
In 1994-95, Chapter 1, a federally funded compensatory education program, provided funding to 33 elementary schools in the Austin Independent School District (AISD) (Texas) where there were high concentrations of low-income students. Service was provided through the following components: (1) Schoolwide Projects using resources for all students; (2) Non-Schoolwide Projects of supplementary reading and mathematics for eligible students; (3) full-day prekindergarten classes for low-income and limited English proficient; and (4) services in 1 nonpublic school and 11 institutions for delinquent or neglected children. Chapter 1 Migrant funds were provided to migrant students through part-time tutors at eight schools. Parental and community involvement programs were common to both Chapter 1 and Chapter 1 Migrant programs. Schools in the third year of their program improvement efforts were required to meet criteria for achievement defined by the Texas Education Agency, and all of these schools did meet their requirements. Other Chapter 1 schoolwide and non-schoolwide program schools generally met their requirements, and none will be in the program improvement process in the 1995-96 school year. Evaluation results support the efficacy of other programs and the Chapter 1 Migrant programs, and recommendations are made for continued use of compensatory funds. Three appendices list definitions, participating AISD schools, and schools with partnerships pairings. (Contains 27 figures, 63 tables, and 6 references.) (SLD)
