School Districts Participating in Multiple Federal Programs. Winter 1978-79.
Goor, Jeanette; And Others
This report provides data obtained from a fast response survey concerning the impact on school districts participating in multiple, federal-categorical programs. In particular, the survey focused on problems stemming from some children's eligibility for more than one of these programs and the districts' policies governing these children's program participation. The survey focused on three federal programs: Title I of the Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA), Public Law (P.L.) 94-142, and ESEA, Title VII. Of the districts responding to this national survey, 59 percent said they had encountered at least one of six specified problems stemming from some children's eligibility for more than one program. Overall, about two-fifths of the districts cited administrative problems only, while the remaining three-fifths mentioned instructional problems only, or a combination of the two. The survey is the seventh in the Fast Response Survey System series of current, policy-oriented issues. (Author/LD)
