A Formal Proposal for an ESEA Title III Project for Emotionally and Learning Disabled Students.
Yankton Independent School District 1, SD.
Presented is a proposal for a 2-year project to identify and remediate needs of emotionally and learning disabled (LD) children in kindergarten through grade 3 in Yankton, South Dakota, to be funded through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title III. Defined in the preface are areas of learning disabilities and associated skills to be learned for remediation. Outlined to justify the proposal are plans to identify kindergarten children with high risk in cognitive, affective, or psychomotor areas; to remediate LD children in grades 2 and 3; to reduce the high rate of retention (5%), and the LD population (12%); to support the disadvantaged minority population (5%); to screen with tests such as the Iowa Test of Basic Skills; and to measure positive change in areas such as peer relationship. Listed are procedures and persons involved in the planning process such as a representative from Sacred Heart Elementary School. Included in the section on program content are procedures involving professional staff (such as a curriculum modifier); six tutors trained in education; specialists (such as a speech therapist); equipment such as cassette recorders; instructional materials such as Dolch books; and inservice sessions. It is explained that after screening (at any time during the program), students will be tutored and monitored daily according to an individualized prescription and will be dismissed from the program upon attainment of objectives (positive change in at least one low area measure). Listed are plans for evaluation, data analysis, dissemination of information, project management, and financial effort. Included are a map, letters, and a statistical report. (MC)
