Nebraska Title I Evaluation, '74.
Nebraska State Dept. of Education, Lincoln.
The multiple activities outlined in this 1973-74 ESEA Title I proposal are designed with a two-fold purpose in mind. Firstly, they are to supplement the instructional program for educationally disadvantaged children by developing a curriculum and techniques, specifically in reading, which would raise their achievement level commensurate with their ability. Secondly, they would support this program with the type of services needed to make it successful. Components that are discussed are: staff visits, inservice, parent advisory councils, an in-depth self study conducted in a sample of 45 schools, reading achievement and math achievement. Although the proposal's emphasis is on reading activities, all other activities in the Title I program are directed toward providing supportive services for children in instructional programs. This reinforcement program is designed to give each student a greater opportunity to achieve success in school. The Omaha public schools use every resource in an attempt to better prepare children educationally in the target area for their future. ESEA Title I funds are linked with other local, state, and federal program to establish a stronger instructional program. Each activity is planned to complement other Title I activities and the total school program in an effort to serve target populations effectively. (Author/AM)
