State of Wisconsin Annual Evaluation Report, Title 1 Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. Fiscal Year 1975.
Brown, Frank N., Ed.
Although the Elementary Secondary Education Act Title I allocation which Wisconsin districts were authorized to receive in Fiscal Year 1975 only represented 48% of the maximum allocation, it was 28% greater than the allocation authorized in the previous fiscal year. Most school districts received allocations under 50,000 dollars. Over one-half of the 378 school districts which offered Title I programs participated in cooperative Title I programs. Some 53,157 children participated in Title I programs; 28 percent of the Title I participants were preschool or kindergarten children, 59 percent were first through fourth graders, 11 percent were fifth through eleventh graders, and two percent were upgraded or in ninth through twelfth grades. More than 75 percent of the children participating in Title I only took part in a regular year project, 12 percent only participated in a summer project, and another 12 percent took part in both a regular year and a summer project. Approximately 88 percent of the Title I dollar was used for instructional, rather than supportive services. English reading, mathematics, preschool, and kindergarten programs accounted for 81 percent of the monies spent on instructional activities during the regular year, and for 68 percent of the monies spent on instructional activities in the summer. Most Title I expenditures also occurred during the regular school year. (Author/JM)
