Evaluation of Operation and Effects of Title IV Expenditures in Utah. Final Report, Volume 1.
Wasatch Inst. for Research and Evaluation, Logan, UT.
Summarizing the second year of a 3-year evaluation project, this nine-chapter report focuses on three Utah programs under Title IV of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The first program, Title IV-Part B (IV-B), provides funds for local education agency (LEA) purchases of educational materials and equipment; the second, Title IV-Part C (IV-C), allocates funds for LEA adop tion or development of programs to meet local educational needs; and the third program, called "Title IV-C Strengthening," grants money to assist state educational agencies (SEAs) in administering IV-C funds. Evaluation activities included onsite school visits, questionnaire surveys, and interviews with LEA and SEA personnel. Chapter 1 discusses the 15 components in the evaluation workscope. Each of the eight subsequent chapters presents the evaluation methods, results, conclusions, and recommendations for different aspects of the three programs. Aspects covered include onsite evaluation of IV-C projects, reasons for LEA involvement in IV-C programs, LEA continuation of successful IV-C projects, proposal request and review processes, provision of technical assistance on IV-C to LEAs, LEA personnel perceptions of IV-C, management and effects of IV-B funds, and SEA personnel perception of IV-C Strengthening funds. Report appendices appear in a related document. (Author/RW)
