The New York State Annual Evaluation Report for 1967-68 Fiscal Year. ESEA Title I.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Evaluation.
In this evaluation report, special attention is given to Elementary and Secondary Education Title I activities conducted by local educational agencies in the major urban areas of New York State, and to those conducted by the New York City Board of Education and its decentralized districts. The nine-part report, which presents specific data requested by the Office of Education as well as other relevant information, focuses on participation, planning, and implementation of program activities; assistance given to local education agencies by the State Education Department (SED); overview of programs, in addition to Title I programs, for the disadvantaged in New York State; reorganization of and administrative changes within the SED; results of the statewide achievement testing program; and, inservice education efforts for teachers of the disadvantaged child. Among the major findings were the following: that the SED has exercised considerable care in attempting to avoid duplication of effort by the many compensatory education programs; statewide, those classified as below minimum competence are not quite managing to maintain their place; and, that selected "treatment" activities, such as reading, appear to be having a positive effect and that small but steady gains are being made. Charts and tables of statistical data are included. (JM)
