Oregon Title I Annual Evaluation Report. Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Fiscal Year 1973.
In 1972-73, 288 of the 339 school districts in Oregon took part in efforts funded under Elementary Secondary Education Act Title I to provide a concentration of resources of educationally disadvantaged students. This report is compiled from project evaluations submitted by these participating school districts. Title I does appear to be helping educationally disadvantaged students: 60 percent of the districts report changes in their regular instructional programs as a result of dissemination from Title I projects. Districts report that the majority of Title I students fully achieved district performance objectives. For example, 55 percent of the 22,221 students in regular term reading projects fully achieved district performance objectives in reading. The small sub-samples of achievement data indicate that Title I students make cognitive gains of 1.5 to 2.5 months in grade-level achievement for each month of instruction. Plans for future action include the following: (1) continue to exercise greater vigilance on division of compensatory education responsibilities; (2) continue tightening the feed back loop for project evaluations and audits and monitoring reports; (3) collect data on results of the new fiscal year 1974 monitoring techniques; (4) provide inservice to districts on a regular basis, and (5) improve management of classroom learning programs.
