ESEA Title I Components: Executive Abstracts; Evaluation 1969-1970.
Los Angeles Unified School District, CA.
This report includes abstracts and evaluations of various ESEA Title I programs in the Los Angeles City Schools during 1969-70. In the five years since spring 1966, ESEA funds and programs have produced great variability in density of services, pupil-teacher ratios, curriculum materials, etc. In 1969-70, under new state guidelines, the following components were mandated, regardless of level: reading and mathematics instruction, auxiliary services (health, counseling, and attendance), parental involvement, intergroup relations, and staff development. Saturated services were the thrust, with the objective of providing as much ESEA intervention as possible for the disadvantaged. Guidelines for the school district mandated a per-capita expenditure for each child; projects concentrated on the younger grades; teaching accountability became a common phrase; performance objectives entered the evaluation field; local-school principals had unprecedented autonomy in writing individual proposals for the educational program at their school; and, the community became more involved in education. Hard data from standardized achievement tests seemed to say that students were learning better than before; evaluative findings on other aspects of these programs are also considered encouraging.
