Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Phoenix, AZ.
This digest is written to provide quick access to information about the Titled programs carried out under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act in the Navajo Area by the Chinle Agency, the Eastern Navajo Agency, the Ft. Defiance Agency, the Shiprock Agency, and the Western Navajo Agency. The information was obtained from the approved projects for FY 1979 prior to the effective date of any amendments or modifications. The report is organized into separate sections for Titles I, IV, and VII. Title I comprises by far the major portion of the report, representing 59 operating projects. The projects are reported by schools alphabetically under the 5 agencies that comprise the Navajo Area. Data provided includes school name, academic deficiency, number of target students, grade levels, budget, and program services. Also provided are staffing patterns for the Navajo Area and each agency, fiscal data, and a statistical summary for FY 1979. Most projects emphasize language arts (especially bilingual services), reading, mathematics, or special education, while program services include individualized instruction, use of teacher aides, and learning and resource centers. Project budgets range from $0 to $200,210. Educators may find this report helpful in comparing programs and planning future activities. (Author/NEC)
