"Title I Report." Evaluation of the Comprehensive Compensatory Education Program, 1969-1970 School Year. Volume 1.
Hansen, Robert A.; Graves, Gordon R.
This compendium of Title I E.S.E.A. program results for 1969-70 includes Language Development, Mathematics, Auxiliary Services, Intergroup Relations, Parent Involvement, Staff Development, Preschool, and Follow Through. The Language Arts Component was basically an individualized approach to reading instruction within each classroom in the Title I schools. A general trend in pupil performance favored Title I schools. Results from the standardized instruments used to evaluate the Mathematics Component indicated that the Title I program produced superior results in grades one, three, and four. Based on opinions expressed in principal and teacher questionnaires, the quality of guidance services improved during the year but still was not optimal. Approximately 200 paraprofessional aides were employed. Inservice programs varied from good to weak depending on the school. Twenty-one interns served in four schools. The question is posed as to which is better, an intern or a student teacher. Augmented library services were offered in thre schools. The Nutritional Break program is in effect at all but one school. During the the school year 1969-1970, approximately 690 study trips were taken by students at the eight compensatory schools and one parochial school. Approximately 20 percent of the study trips were out of town. Although this was generally a smoothly running program, data showed that some teachers needed to be encouraged to take more advantage of this program. (JM)
