Alaska Title I ESEA Evaluation Report, Fiscal 1977.
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau.
In 1976-77 a total of 5,917 students participated in Title I programs in the State of Alaska. Program emphasis continued to be on supplementary instruction in the basic skills from the preschool through the elementary and secondary levels. The most obvious trend in the Title I programs and their greatest strength over the past several years is that more monies are being budgeted for instructional personnel compared to other project expenses, thus bringing more individual direct services to target children. Most districts are requiring less assistance in planning and implementing successful programs because they have a better understanding of Title I purposes and because of additional experience in writing Title I projects. Program objectives are being more clearly written and records are more carefully kept so that meaningful evaluations are being made. Village programs depend on the assistance of native aides. Their training remains one of the greatest needs of Title I programs in Alaska. Activities of the state education agency have included monitoring, workshops, and the construction of a handbook for district administrators. Tables and graphs in this document present enrollment figures, number of staff persons funded by Title I, and total Title I program outlays. Also included are a description and evaluation of three typical district projects: an urban district (Anchorage), a rural district (Kuspuk), and a small town (Cordova). (Author/AM)
