1980-81 Overlap Study: Number of Students Served by Single and Multiple Compensatory Education Programs. Publication No. 80.86.
Austin Independent School District, TX. Office of Research and Evaluation.
In order to provide information for compensatory education program planners and coordinators, the Austin (Texas) Independent School District was studied in 1980-81 to estimate the number of children being served by one or more compensatory education programs. These programs served 14,355 students at 80 elementary or secondary district campuses: English for Speakers of Other Languages; Local/State Bilingual Programs; 1- and 5-Year Migrant Students Served by a Migrant Teacher; 1- and 5-Year Migrant Students Not Served by a Migrant Teacher; Special Education; Direct Instruction; Title I Students Served; Title I Schoolwide Projects; Former Title I Students in Schools Receiving Emergency School Aid Act funds; Colorsounds; SCE Transitional Bilingual Education; and SCE Elementary Reading Instruction. Of all students served, 12,015 (83.7%) were served by one program only; 2,095 (14.6%) by two programs; 234 (1.6%) by three; and 11 (.1%) by four. Although over 2,000 more students were served by compensatory programs in 1980-81 than in 1979-80, the number served by more than two programs dropped from 1,065 to 245, largely because of the ending of the Title 7 Bilingual Program in grades K-6. Duplicated and unduplicated counts of students served are presented by school and for the district as a whole. (SB)
