This bulletin provides information on financial and participation statistics, including the number of programs, Title I programs, State compensatory education programs, and joint State and Title I funded programs. Children served are given in terms of grade, ethnic/language group characteristics, and public and non-public participation. Program characteristics are described in terms of parent advisory committees, time of operation, personnel, program activities, and training programs. Summer programs are described in relation to financial and participation statistics, participation by grade, ethnic/language group composition, program characteristics, time of operation program activities, professional staff, and training programs. Comparisons between the current year and previous years is not possible in some instances due to a modification of data-gathering procedures which now aims to gather more detailed data. It is recommended that the modification process continue and that particular attention be paid to a number of issues, among them being the use of standardized tests for math programs, the conversion of raw scores on reading and math to standard scores, and an examination of the modified data for the purpose of identification of variables which appear to be related to program effectiveness.
