Annual Report and Evaluation, ESEA Title I (P. L. 89-10), Fiscal Year 1972.
Cupp, Marion E.; Farris, Dale
In the State of Washington, 297 of 316 local school districts operated Title I, Elementary Secondary Education Act projects during Fiscal Year 1972 with approximately 12,272,000 dollars appropriated. The bulk of Title I funds (85 percent) supported project activities in the 25 largest school districts where most of the target populations are clustered. More than 56,000 public school children and 1,000 non-public school youngsters participated directly in Title I projects, and an estimated 380,000 public and 7,000 non-public students benefitted indirectly because of materials, support services, or instructional strategies that paced improvements in the general program within target area schools, even as the special needs of Title I children were being served. Nearly 1,000 dropouts also participated in special projects, and 1,000 other students were served through institutions for the neglected and delinquent. Ninety-eight percent of the elementary schools eligible to participate did so, and 211 of 216 (97 percent) eligible secondary schools actually served students. All of the 38 elementary non-public schools within eligible districts had students involved directly in Title I projects. None of three eligible non-public secondary schools participated. Only about one-half of the 127,234 low income eligible children are actually being served by Title I. (Author/JM)
