Title I ESEA Selecting Target Areas: Handbook for Local Title I Officials.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This handbook is designed to help school officials interpret the Title I, 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act regulations affecting the selection of target areas and to apply them in a manner most appropriate to their particular circumstances. It should help officials designate eligible attendance areas and select project areas, using the best available data. The handbook can serve both as a reference guide and as a step-by-step guide to selecting target areas. For the 1971-72 school year, the handbook should be particularly helpful in refining the use of data sources used in previous years. The section that tells how to translate data to attendance areas and then how to compare attendance areas is especially useful. For the 1972-73 school year, the handbook will serve the additional function of explaining the geography and use of the 1970 census data. For the purposes of this handbook, an eligible attendance area is defined as an attendance area which meets the legal requirements of having a high concentration of children from low income families. A project area is an eligible attendance area that has been chosen by the local educational agency to be a participating area for the Title I program. Target area is a term frequently used to refer collectively to eligible attendance areas and project areas. (Author/JM)
