District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.
Through Title III of the Elementary Secondary Education Act of 1965, six programs were funded in Washington, D.C. public schools to meet the educational needs of handicapped disadvantaged children. One of the programs, the Columbia Road Pre-School Pilot Project was designed to serve as an experimental model for early childhood education for disadvantaged black youngsters. The second, the Montessori Preschool, served as a vehicle for adopting the Montessori method to the public school setting and to improve the cognitive and social skills of preschool children. Another program, the Continuing Education and Services to School Age Mothers, was to provide educational services to pregnant students and/or mothers and their children. The Rubella Children's Program was designed to provide educational opportunities to multiply handicapped children. Another, Parent-Partner Traineeship Parent Education Program helped students with social and academic problems work with their parents in learning activities. A sixth project, the Training Center for Open Space Schools, facilitated the implementation of open space education primarily by training school personnel to staff them. Full evaluation reports are included for each project. (DEP)
