This document is concerned with the objectives and evaluation of the educational programs of six elementary schools. Charles R. Drew Elementary School has been classified as a Title I school and receives compensatory services to improve academic performances and self-concepts of the pupils. E. R. Carter Elementary School is also a Title I school. Of Carter's pupils, 66 percent are derived from families with incomes less than 2000 dollars. Because of this high deprivation level, the students have the attendant learning problems, especially in reading and the low self-concept characteristics of this lower socioeconomic group. The program at Carter, both federally and locally financed, were designed primarily to improve the educational level of these pupils. C. L. Gideons Elementary School qualified, because of income levels, for funds and services from special projects to help the school meet the needs of the pupils and community. W. H. Crogman Elementary School qualified, because of low-income levels, for funds and services from special projects to help the school meet the needs of the pupils and community, including assistance under Title I of the Elementary Secondary Education Act. Grant Park Elementary school, a Title I school, qualified, because of low-income levels, for funds and services from special projects. English Avenue Elementary School, a Title I school, offered special programs which attempted to compensate for the learning deficiencies of the majority of its pupils who were classified as disadvantaged.
