Evaluation of the Emergency School Aid Act (ESAA) Basic Program, 1978-79. Report No. 13-8.
Crawley, Nora S.
Atlanta Public Schools received $604,250 to operate a program under the Emergency School Aid Act (ESAA). The program provided remedial reading and mathematics to eligible students. Students were selected on the basis of scoring 90 age achievement quotient points or below on the "Iowa Test of Basic Skills." Four objectives were included in the ESAA Basic Remedial Reading and Mathematics Program, including: (1) gains in reading and mathematics; (2) staff development for teachers and aides; (3) purchase of appropriate instructional materials; and (4) parent and community involvement. Each objective is discussed with its accompanying activities and evaluation. The report concludes that the ESAA staff was extremely successful in implementing its objectives for the school year 1978-1979. (DS)
