An Evaluation of ESEA Title I Programs, Community School District 15.
New York Univ., NY. Center for Field Research and School Services.
The programs in District 15 funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act offered a wide variety of educational programs targeted for the educationally deprived child. The major common thread running through all Title I Programs was the emphasis upon improvement of basic academic skills. Primary focus of all programs was directed toward acquisitions of skills which would lead to improved reading. The following elements comprised the funded programs under title I: Services to Early Elementary Children, Distar, Pre-Kindergarten, Parents School Center, Project Read, Project Improve, Cameo, Bi-lingual-Bi-Cultural, Hi-Impact, Saturday and Holiday Bus Trip, Optional Assignment, Non Public Schools, Prescriptive Reading Lab, and Remedial Reading Lab. The various Title I components varied from special programs set in one school to other programs which were in all grade schools. The diversity and comprehensiveness of programs required close monitoring by the District Office. At the school level funded programs were often those directly implemented by principal or an assistant principal. Some programs had a coordinator whose function was to see that the program was being implemented at the various settings. At the district level funded programs were monitored by the two deputy superintendents and the Title I coordinator. The evaluation of the various components generally followed a pre, post and predicted post model. Evaluation objectives were primarily concerned with changes in reading achievement. (Author/JM)
