Evaluation of the ESEA Title IV Program in New Jersey for Fiscal Year 1977. A Report of the State Advisory Council.
The evaluation data for this report on the Elementary Secondary Education Act Title IV Programs in New Jersey include published material, "fugitive" documents from the files of New Jersey Department of Education staff, statistical information compiled especially for this study, numerous interviews with members of the Department and visits to 38 local districts. Title IV provides funds to purchase school library or other instructional resources; develop, field test, and disseminate innovative programs; and assist the state to identify and meet educational needs. Three basic questions were: (1) To what extent did the state adhere to the multiple elements of each program, as set forth in the 1976 Annual Program Plan?; (2) In what respects did the procedures used support or hinder efficiency in program administration and achievement of program objectives?; and (3) To what extent have program objectives for each part of Title IV actually been achieved? In nearly every instance, the administrative procedures and activities set forth in New Jersey's Annual Program Plan were carried out in an exemplary fashion, as they had been in the 1976 fiscal year program.
