Report of Final Evaluation ESEA Title I Projects, Fiscal Year 1973; Phoenix Area, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Department of Interior.
Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Phoenix, AZ.
A summary of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I projects operated in the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), Phoenix Area, during fiscal year 1973 is given in this evaluation report on a school by school basis. Data, presented by charts and graphs, cover: the BIA's organization; student enrollment in the Phoenix Area; school expenditures; student participation by component and school; professional and paraprofessional staff; parent council involvement; and student achievement in reading, language, mathematics, special education, and physical education. The data in this report show that, except for a few isolated grades in some schools, projects were very successful during 1973. Students in every grade gained at or above the national average in reading and language and, with the exception of students in grades 3 and 11, also in mathematics. The following recommendations are made: (1) schools showing low gains in reading and mathematics should critically evaluate their programs to see what is hindering their students and (2) projects which are demonstrating consistent gains in every grade should attempt to have the regular program institute the activities throughout the school.
