Planning and Developing 1974-75 Building Evaluation Prototypes Under ESEA Title I for the Minneapolis Board of Education Principals' Committee.
An evaluation committee of Minneapolis Board of Education Title I principals initiated the Minneapolis Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I Principals' Building Level Evaluation Project. The purpose of the project was: (1) to help the committee assess the evaluation needs of Minneapolis Title I principals; and (2) to study the feasibility of using alternative evaluation models for conducting building level evaluation. The five phases of the work plan were: (1) area meetings with Title I principals in Minneapolis North, East and West Areas, and from parochial schools, to determine interest in building level evaluation; (2) in-depth interviews with ESEA Title I principals who expressed interest in building level evaluation; (3) literature search for evaluation models relating to building level evaluation; (4) preparation of an evaluation "menu" consisting of a simple, nontechnical pamphlet designed to stimulate discussion on building level evaluation; and (5) preparation of a final report of the project. Through a series of meetings, questionnaires, and interviews, it was possible to ascertain the interests of Title I principals in building level evaluation. Their main areas of concern, in order of frequency, were: (1) overall program effects on pupils; (2) attitudes of staff, pupils, and parents toward the program; and (3) best allocation of Title I funds.
