Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.
Ninety-one projects funded by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title III, and providing funds to public school districts to demonstrate the feasibility and practicality of eudcational improvements, are summarized and highlighted in this project status and progess report of Ohio ESEA Title III programs. Projects are broken down according to seven categories which in most instances are said to correspond to the six statewide goals adopted by the State Board of Education in June of 1973: basic academic skills, capabilities of aesthetic experience, career education, personal development, institutional support systems, learning to be a learner, physical fitness, and recreation and mental health. Another categorization, adaptation projects, includes 6 programs with procedures for implementation at reasonable cost. These programs are based on six earlier Title III projects. Eight Title III projects that have been certified by out of state evaluation teams as having met or exceeded rigorous standards of educational excellence in a national validation process are being considered for national dissemination. It is asserted that in 1975, Ohio became the first state to offer proven, carefully evaluated educational designs for adaptation to individual school districts through ESEA Title III. (Author/AM)
