ESEA Title I Evaluation: Summary Report.
Saint Louis Board of Education, MO.
Presented here are summaries of the evaluations of major Title I, ESEA instructional programs conducted during 1970-71 in the St. Louis city schools. In the "Rooms of 20" program, elementary school students attend school in ungraded classrooms of no more than 20 students. One teacher works with each class, and students and teachers concentrate on reading, language, and arithmetic. The Remedial Teachers program serves Title I students having the most severe reading problems. The Work-Study High School program provides an opportunity for vocational training and work experience to students who are otherwise prone to drop out of school altogether. Lincoln Opportunity High School is for students suspended from their regular high school for behavior which disrupted regular classroom proceedings, or their inability to succeed academically because of inadequate learning skills or motivation. The Mini-Grant component provides small grants to individual Title I schools to aid faculties in solving their instructional problems and to provide demonstrations for other schools with similar problems. Two distinct inservice training programs were conducted under the Title I inservice component. One was a massive program of workshops called Springboard, while the other consisted of three district wide and six school level programs. (Author/JM)
