Kimball, George H.
Journal of Research and Evaluation of the Oklahoma City Public Schools, v11 n4 Dec 1981
The report evaluates the 1980-81 Title IV-A Indian Education Program consisting of three components designed to address special priority needs of Indian students in the Oklahoma City Public School System. Performance goals of the first component, supplementary academic assistance, were long-term tutoring of Indian students who scored below the 26th percentile (nationally) on the district California Achievement Test; short-term tutoring in specific subject areas in which individual students were perceived by their teachers to be having difficulty; and coordination with other local, state, and federal programs which provide academic assistance. The supplementary guidance and counseling component consisted of five goals: reducing Indian student absenteeism; counseling Indian students referred for adjustment or behavioral problems; assisting with financial and health care needs; providing information on career and educational opportunities; and enhancing Indian cultural awareness. Thirteen objectives were outlined for the third component, the administrative component, in reference to program staff performance goals to provide the most effective and efficient program of service to Indian students. Goals for the three components were met and are elaborately discussed with statistical information. (ERB)
