This is a final evaluation report for Atlanta, Georgia's Follow Through Program, a project conducted from 1977-80 to curb low achievement among Project Head Start students as they move through the primary grades. Various program components including psychological, health, and social services, administration, staff development, and parent involvement are described. Results of the program evaluation are discussed for several areas such as: (1) the degree of implementation of the Independent Learning Model (the program's model); (2) the reading progress of students; (3) the extent of parent involvement; (4) student gains on achievement tests; (5) program costs; (6) attendance; and (7) the performance of the health, psychological, and social services components. Extensive statistical data on results are included in the form of 22 tables, four charts and an appendix. Recommendations for program improvement are offered at the end of the report. (APM)
