The general program at Robinson Elementary School was supported by two compensatory programs, one federally funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act and one locally funded. 24 pupils who were considered to be the most educationally deprived by virtue of standardized test scores were selected for the Title I English-Reading Activity. In March, when two more staff members were employed by Title I, an additional 19 pupils were selected for participation during the remainder of the school year. The primary objective of the Title I program was to improve the reading competencies of the most academically deprived pupils through tutorial and/or individualized instruction. Medical assistance was available to Title I pupils in the form of eyeglasses and hearing aids. The Comprehensive Instructional Program is a locally conceived and funded project designed to improve instruction in the elementary grades. Pupils in grades one through three were diagnostically tested three times during the year in reading skills. Teachers received detailed information from the results, including data about the performance of each child on each item. Teachers worked together by grade level to identify the needs of their pupils. In some instances, grade levels combined for more comprehensive and inclusive identification. (Author/JM)
