Title IV-C Pilot Program: An Educational Needs Projection Model. Project Report. Estimates of Personnel Needed and Costs of HISD Bilingual Education Programs.
Alston, Herbert L.
The general purpose of this project (Title IV-C Pilot Program: An Educational Needs Projection Model) is to develop procedures for forecasting the personnel needed by the school district for a five-year period in response to current and expected legislation, changing student population, etc. During the first project year, 1976-77, emphasis is placed on forecasting the personnel needed for mandated bilingual education programs. This report summarizes the "Bilingual Education Cost Analysis," by Cardenas, Bernal and Kean (1976 a, 1976 b); presents a cost analysis of the Houston ISD bilingual education programs based on existing programs; presents initial estimates of personnel needs and costs for the Houston Independent School District; discusses the use of these estimates in an Educational Needs Projection Model; and includes two appendices, one comparing the Cardenas et al and the Alston bilingual education cost analyses, and the second on the ENP models.
