Vanecko, James J.; And Others
Between the 1975-76 and 1976-77 school years, Title I school eligibility, student selection, and concentration of funds and services are scheduled to change. This report outlines the plans of the agency which will compare the distribution of instructional and other educational services before and after the policy changes and provide analysis for possible modifications in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act with regard to allocation policy. The study design, data sources, and analytic procedures selected to address the question of what kinds of services reach what kinds of students are described in detail. The study will focus on demonstration projects to be conducted in 16 school districts. Research objectives are identified as follows: (1) estimation and analysis of distribution of services; (2) analysis of community reaction to Title I programs and the demonstration projects; (3) estimation of costs or savings associated with altered allocation and eligibility policies; (4) the gathering of descriptive information on possible achievement outcomes of the demonstrations.
