Impact 7 of the Title VI Programs in the State of Oregon, September 1972-August 1973.
McDonnell, John J.; And Others
Described and evaluated are the 21 programs funded by Title VI for eight handicapping categories comprising 1,024 children at all educational levels in Oregon during 1972-1973. Explained are criteria such as adequacy of documented needs established by the state Board of Education for funding projects and training procedures for utilization of a Third Party Evaluation Model. The following are among results discussed: number of projects per category such as eight projects for the emotionally disturbed (ED), five projects for the speech and language impaired, and two projects each for the educable mentally retarded (EMR) and preschool children; costs; kinds of services such as a classroom utilizing behavior modification to offset undesirable behaviors learned at home; and conclusions stressing success of resource rooms for ED and EMR students, regular class placement, preschool programs, parent training programs, paraprofessionals for language remediation. Recommendations emphasized the need for further data on effects of integration, and encouragement of proposals featuring vocational educational skills. Given for each project are the title, location (a map is included), population served, funding allocation, dates, background information, objectives and evaluation plan, methodology, the Third Party Evaluator's comments, and pertinent tables or forms.
