Church, John G.
Coordination, planning, legislation, parent involvement, handling complaints, applying affirmative action and employment practices, preparation of program guides, contribution to consolidated regulations, preparation of materials for the State Board of Education, and other factors involved in the administration of the compensatory education activities are described in this report. Among the programs and services profiled are management service, professional development in education, reading and mathematics, special incentive projects, follow through, compensatory education in state institutions, community services unit, migrant education, guided school visits, school housing aid, ESEA Title I, and educationally disadvantaged youth program. Programs are described in terms of purpose, participants, objectives, eligibility, authorization, funding level and achievements. Evaluation and pupil achievement of compensatory education are seen to reveal definite evidence of the effectiveness of these projects in all six components of language development, mathematics, auxiliary services, parent participation, community involvement, staff development, and intergroup relations.
