Moore, Sarah H.; Jordan, Linda F.
Numerous tables and graphs present data on pupil participation, expenditures, achievement, staffing, and parent advisory councils in Title I financed programs in Georgia. Summaries of data presented for each of these areas indicate the following: (1) Title I in Georgia maintained its basic skills program emphasis with preschool, reading, mathematics, food service, and transportation activities accounting for the major participation in Title I; (2) reading activities accounted for 55.9 percent, mathematics activities 22.5 percent, and preschool activities for 19.9 percent of the total expenditures; (3) preschool activities accounted for the highest per participant expenditures; (4) 57 percent of the participants in preschool activities met or exceeded program objectives; (5) over 60 percent of the participants in reading and mathematics activities met or exceeded the objectives; and (6) in-service training for Title I personnel and parental involvement were important factors in determining the quality of Title I programs. Suggestions are made in the areas of basic skills development, goal expectations, standardized evaluation efforts, and increased technical assistance. (EB)
