Effective Compensatory Reading Program in an Ungraded Organization: I.P. Reynolds Elementary School, 1972-73. Research and Development Report, Volume 7, Number 12, September 1973.
Willis, Pat; Lauchner, Jan
Federal funds authorized under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 and Title IV-A of the 1967 Amendments to the Social Security Act provided compensatory programs and family services. The English-Reading Activity under Title I consisted of intensive reading instruction and health-medical services for the lowest achievers. Title IV-A funds enabled the establishment of day care centers and extended day care centers for children of parents who met the qualifications. The Comprehensive Instructional Program, a locally funded special project, also served the school in the area of reading for grades four through six. All special programs operated in addition to the program under general funds, thereby serving a compensatory function. Classroom organization at Reynolds has been somewhat revised over previous years to accommodate the needs of the pupils. Last year's relatively ungraded arrangement separated pupils into two levels: primary, including kindergarten through third grade; and upper, including fourth through seventh grades. The staff, however, perceived that fourth grade pupils function best with other fourth graders, and this grade was made a level in itself for the 1972-73 school year. (Author/JM)
