Haywood County Schools, Title I ESEA Annual Evaluation Report, FY1975.
Haywood County Consolidated Schools, Waynesville, NC.
Program statistics, coordination with other federal programs, community and parent involvement, and descriptive evaluations of corrective reading, corrective math, the Broyhill Home for Children, staff development, and parent involvement are provided in this evaluation of North Carolina's Haywood County Schools. A section on the effects of Title I programs on educationally deprived public and non-public school children, as well as those activities that contribute the most to their achievement is also included. A comparative study of the results presented in this report and a subjective review of the performance of Title I children indicate that the reading program is enabling children on the average to hold their own in terms of achievement and that it is allowing for significant progress. The corrective math component also produces positive results. Among the activities that contribute the most in improving the achievement of educationally deprived are a reorganization of the Title I program to concentrate on a limited number of high priority areas such as corrective reading and math, the establishment of reading laboratories, and increasing awareness of the need for a diagnostic-prescriptive approach to the educational needs of children.
