Project Head Start 1969 - 1970: A Descriptive Report of Programs and Participants.
Bureau of the Census (DOC), Suitland, MD.
This report is the third in a series describing the range of children, their families, and staff members who have participated in Project Head Start and the center activities in which they have been involved. The data presented here offer a general picture of the various populations served and activities in which they participated during the Full Year 1968-69, Summer 1969, and Full Year 1969-70 Head Start programs. The five sections concern: (1) children and their families; (2) medical and dental information--immunizations, screening tests and care, dental care, other medical conditions and care; (3) center information--staff and participants, facilities and transportation, supplies, activities and equipment, nutritional services, curriculum and training, center operations and program support; (4) staff member characteristics; and (5) parent participant--center activities, class activities. The tables presented were selected as a means of suggesting leads for additional and more refined analyses of these data as well as pointing to areas where smaller special studies may be helpful. Copies of the forms and questionnaires used to collect the data, with the instructions used to complete them, are provided in the appendix. (Author/KM)
