Annual Report of Programs for the Disadvantaged in Texas, ESEA, Title I, 1971-72.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Evaluation.
In 1971-72, 1,045 school districts in the State of Texas provided supplementary instruction and/or services to educationally/economically disadvantaged children through the use of Federal funds made available under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. The number of pupils who have participated in these projects has fluctuated somewhat. The greatest percentage of the State enrollment participating in projects was in 1968-69. Since that time, the percentage has decreased significantly. This was due in part to the fact that school districts were complying more with the regulations of the ESEA Title I legislation by serving only those pupils exhibiting the greatest need for special attention. The data collection instrument which provided the information for this report was the "Annual Information Report of Programs Funded Through ESEA, Title I Regular," Examination of the reporting instrument used by local districts revealed that the districts were moving in the direction of defining pupil objectives. For purposes of reporting data on the 1971-72 ESEA Title I funded programs in Texas, a sample of districts was used. The sampling framework was based on the average daily attendance of school districts. (Author/JM)
