This program is stated to have been designed as a new state-administered categorical aid program, with the purpose of making available additional state educational resources to students who have or are likely to have low levels of achievement, especially in relation to social and economic factors. Chapters include an introduction which describes the history of the program and accountability development; evaluation procedures with limitations of the evaluation results; enrollment and financial statistics; program characteristics; program evaluation with an analysis of program operation and program effects; evaluation of program objectives; results of program objectives; and evaluation of pupil achievement. Results obtained from evaluation results submitted by each project indicate that this program is considered generally effective with the greatest impact on students, with parent and teacher groups also benefiting from the program. More than one quarter of the student population is evaluated as meeting or having exceeded 100 percent or all of the objectives which were established for them. (Author/AM)
