Lesser, Saal D.; Reece, Gene K.
In 1977-78, four remediation programs were funded under Title I and three under Impact Aid in New York City's School District 30. Title I programs included: (1) a teacher-paraprofessional reading team program in 12 elementary, intermediate and junior high schools; (2) a teacher-paraprofessional mathematics team program in 10 elementary, intermediate and junior high schools; (3) an optional assignment reading program for pupils who attended three District 30 schools beyond the bounds of their neighborhoods' attendance areas; and (4) a non-public school reading component for students in 3 private schools. Impact Aid programs included two reading and one mathematics component, all employing both teachers and paraprofessionals. The behavioral objective in each Title I and Impact Aid component was for seventy percent of the students to attain progress beyond their computed average rate of reading or math scores. With the exception of the optional assignment reading program, each program met or surpassed the objective. In this report, each program component is more fully described and student achievement data are presented. (Author/GC)
