The Reading Skills Centers, funded under Title 1 of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, were designed to improve reading skills of the target population consisting of optional assignment children who were economically deprived and retarded in development of reading skills. Centers were operated in six elementary and one junior high schools, each staffed by a teacher and educational assistant/associate. The program entitled Educational Assistants to Aid Underachievers, funded under Title 1 of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act as part of the Optional Assignment Program, was designed to improve the reading and mathematics skills of the "optional assignment" students who are also economically and educationally deprived. Each of the educational assistants was, where necessary, to work with small groups and individuals under the direction of the teachers, supervise optional assignment children on buses, aid with homework, and arouse interest in reading. At Public School 269, which was designated as a Title 1 school, remediation services were provided initially to improve the reading and mathematics skills of approximately 370 eligible pupils in grades 1-6. Several modifications were made to the program at P. S. 269 in February 1974 to service an additional 98 pupils. (Author/JM)
