St. Louis schools are served by five major programs funded by Title I of the Elementary Secondary Education Act of 1965. The Reading Improvement Teams help those children whose reading deficit is the greatest. Each team is composed of a principal, a reading assistant, a remedial reading teacher, a reading aide, and 10 classroom teachers. The Rooms of 15 program serves elementary schoolchildren who have difficulty in mastering basic skills. The program included 79 classrooms, each of which contained no more than 15 students, located at 34 sites. Lincoln High School was established for students who have serious difficulties coping in a regular high school. Each student is assisted in working out his academic and behavioral problems to the point where he can adjust to a regular high school, or alternatively, to vocational training or employment. The Work-Study high school was established for high school students in the Title I high school attendance areas who find a traditional academic curriculum unsuited to their needs and interests. The educational needs of children in parochial and private schools are addressed through the Title I nonpublic school program. During 1972-73, four Lutheran and 18 Catholic schools took part in the program. (Author/JM)
