Needs Assessment for State URRD Funded Programs in Seattle. Report No. 77-3.
This report is a 1977 needs assessment for the State Urban, Rural, Racial, Disadvantaged Education Programs (URRD) in Seattle, Washington. URRD programs are defined as state funded efforts which provide special services to students from disadvantaged, minority, or poverty backgrounds. The study provides data on students in the Seattle Public Schools in order to assist administrators and proposal writers in determining concentrations of need in each of five funding areas which include: reentry motivation, preschool education, academic achievement, bilingual/bicultural education, and Indian education. Information regarding dropout rates, number of students served by preschool programs, low achievement, number of students from non-English backgrounds and their ethnic distribution, and the number of American Indian students is presented for each of the relevant funding areas. A summary of findings concludes the paper. (APM)
