Title I Parent Involvement Evaluation. Report No. 77-19.
Meland, Kathy M.
This report presents data gathered during the 1976-1977 school year to determine the extent, nature, benefits, and efficiency of parent involvement in Title I programs in Seattle, Washington. It was found that while Seattle's Title I programs complied with Federal, State, and district guidelines regarding parent involvement, the actual level of parent participation was low. In addition, more resources were directed toward parent involvement with staff members, resulting in little involvement between parents and students. Finally, no relationship was found between parent-involvement and student achievement. Recommendations are made in the report to improve the quantity and quality of parent participation in Title I programs. (APM)
