ESEA Title I Program Evaluation [Phoenix Union High School System, Arizona].
Estes, Gary D.; And Others
In accordance with the intent of compensatory educational programs supported by Elementary Secondary Education Act Title I funds, the Phoenix Union High School System has implemented supplementary programs during the 1974-75 school year at four of the District's 11 high schools: Carl Hayden, North, Phoenix Union, and South Mountain, and at the continuing Education Center for dropouts and potential dropouts. St. Mary's High School, a private high school, also participated in the Title I program. A primary thrust of the Title I project at the four District High Schools was a clinical reading program designed to alleviate reading deficiencies of target students as indicated by scores on the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills. Carl Hayden and North High Schools also had supplementary compensatory programs in English/Writing and Mathematics. The Iowa Tests of Basic Skills and writing samples were used in evaluating the English/Writing programs. The Shaw-Hiehle: Individualized Computational Skills Test was used in the Mathematics programs. The Continuing Education Center used the same instruments for Reading, English and Mathematics, whereas the Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills-Science and Social Studies-were used to evaluate progress in science and social studies programs. The total number of students served during the course of these programs was 3,171. (Author/JM)
