Remedial Services for Eligible Nonpublic School Pupils. 1972-1973. Final Report.
Hittleman, Daniel; And Others
The Central Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Remedial Services to Eligible Nonpublic School Pupils is a direct outgrowth of the ESEA Title I Act of 1965 and has been operating in New York City Public Schools since 1966. During the 1972-73 school year approximately 16,300 pupils were enrolled in the NPS program and were serviced by the following components: Corrective Reading, Corrective Mathematics, English as a Second Language, Clinical-Guidance, Speech Therapy, Homework Helper, and Services to Handicapped Children. Formerly the programs functioned as independent entities. This year, Federal and State guidelines required that children suffering from multiple handicaps be provided with concerted remedial services. Reading, Mathematics, and English as a Second Language were recognized as priority programs, to be supported by Clinical-Guidance, Speech, and the Homework Helper Program. The "umbrella" project, encompassing both instructional and supportive components, was conceived of in order to offer this spectrum of Remedial Services to Eligible Nonpublic School Pupils. Pupils receiving these supportive services had to be referred through the priority remedial instructional services. An overall evaluation sample of 30 schools was chosen in conjunction with the central offices of the NPS ESEA Title I program. (Author/JM)
