Management Module: Application Approval. A Study of State Management Practices: Looking Back at Title I and Toward Chapter 1.
Putman, Kim E.
Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 made funds available to local education agencies (LEAs) to meet the educational needs of educationally deprived children. In 1981, Title I was superseded by Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act. Five volumes--a final report and four management modules--were the products of an evaluation report documenting how States met the requirements of the Title I law, as amended in 1978, and identifying exemplary State management practices and documents. Each module is organized in three sections: a brief history of the management responsibility from Title I to Chapter 1; States' preliminary plans for operating under Chapter 1; and examples of successful materials and practices used by States under Title I. The module, "Application Approval," presented in this volume, contains responses from State personnel concerning whether they would include application approval in their future program management, examples of methods and formats used by States to document individual project information in Title I applications to LEAs, and complete Chapter 1 applications from five States.
