Mobile Units Supplementing Education (M.U.S.E.). Evaluation, ESEA Title III, Fiscal Year 1970.
Dodge County Schools, Fremont, NE.
A project in Dodge County, Nebraska, from July 1, 1969, to June 30, 1970, used Mobile Units Supplementing Education (MUSE) under an Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title III grant. The primary objective of the pilot project and the operational grant was to demonstrate and explore the possibilities of bringing special and supplemental units of education to small isolated school districts. The secondary objective was to research the effect of mobile classrooms, good equipment and supplies, and a planned program of publicity upon the speech therapy program as it effected the students, their parents, the classroom teacher, the superintendents, and the speech therapist. An attempt to obtain an objective evaluation was made through the use of a battery of tests given to selected students at the start and close of the speech therapy program. Subjective evaluations were collected by means of questionnaires. The returned questionnaires indicated that the respondents considered the project to be valuable. However, the project has been discontinued owing to high costs to the local school districts. Copies of evaluation forms used and a breakdown of expenses for the project were also included in the report. (PS)
