Part one of this two-part report focuses on the supplementary programs, partially funded under Titles I and IV of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, at Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary School. The faculty at Bethune chose to focus on the primary clusters--kindergarten, first, second, and third grades--for evaluation. Special emphasis was placed on instructional methods. The purpose of supplementary programs are to enhance and expand existing school services; to provide a vital link between school, parent, and community; and to help achieve the stated goals and objectives of the school. Bethune had four special programs: Title I, Title IV-A, Teacher Corps, and the Comprehensive Instructional Program. Part two of this report focuses on the supplementary programs, partially funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, at Thomasville Heights Elementary School. Four projects were utilized as resources in support of the instructional program: Comprehensive Instructional Program; E.S.E.A., Title I; Career Opportunities Program; and Instructional Assistance Program. Each of these projects contributed services designed to meet certain needs of the pupil population. At both schools, variables measured during the evaluation process included pupils' self-concept, academic achievement in reading, and openness of organizational climate. (Author/JM)
