This report presents a description of the instructional programs, funded in part under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, and the findings of a study which assessed pupil performance in reading and mathematics and related estimated costs to pupil performance. The following projects were utilized as resources: To better meet the needs of the pupils during the 1972-73 school year, the Follow Through Project was extended to include grade three, and thus operated in grades kindergarten through three. The Interdependent Learning Model was the basic model for teaching all Follow Through classes. The model made use of a game format for reinforcing classroom instruction and for strengthening skills. All Follow Through classes were taught the Direct Approach to Decoding to acquire phonic skills. The Title I Program was restructured so that the most educationally deprived pupils were taken from the classroom for one period each day in order to receive intensive reading instruction. The Career Opportunities Program paid all college cost for aides to attend accredited colleges or universities. The Comprehensive Instructional Program was concerned with curriculum improvement and teacher inservice training. Reading and mathematics instruction in grades one through three were stressed.
