A Study of State Management Practices: Looking Back at Title I and Toward Chapter 1. Final Report.
Bessey, Barbara L.; And Others
This volume contains the "Final Report" of a study commissioned to document how States met the requirements of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended in 1978, and to identify management practices and documents that can be used by States to facilitate their management of Title I programs and those of Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act that superseded Title I in 1981. State documents and materials were reviewed; indepth telephone interviews were conducted with 49 State Title I coordinators; and onsite interviews were conducted with a nationally representative sample of 20 State Title I coordinators and their staffs. Finally, 60 school districts from the 20 States were visited, and 28 were contacted by telephone. This volume contains the executive summary, discusses the evolution of the State role in Title I, presents the study methodology, and details the resources available for administration of Title I programs. The remaining 90 percent of the document presents the results from the interviews followed by a sampling of district comments for each of the major State responsibilities: State rulemaking, application approval, monitoring, technical assistance and dissemination, evaluation, parent involvement, and enforcement.
