Title I in Ohio. 17th Annual Evaluation, Title I, Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Fiscal 1982.
Young, Eileen, Ed.
The report summarizes activities provided in Ohio through Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act during fiscal year 1982, and provides basic statistics and information on participation trends, instructional impact, expenditure and staffing patterns, inservice education for staff, parent involvement, and 5-year trends. Programs funded include supplemental instruction for educationally disadvantaged children, special educational programs for migrant children, and supplementary services for handicapped, neglected, and delinquent children. Evaluation data indicate: that students in Title I basic programs gained an average of 9 NCEs (normal curve equivalent unit) in reading and an average of 8 NCEs in mathematics; that the migrant education programs helped younger migrant children improve their basic skills in oral language, reading, and mathematics; that programs for handicapped students helped 8-9 of every 10 students reach over half of the objectives set for them; that supplementary instruction for delinquent and neglected children in State facilities resulted in over half of the youngsters gaining one month or more for each month of reading instruction. Some reasons for the success of Title I in Ohio and recommendations for effective provision of future services are outlined. The State's role in providing and administering Title I services is briefly described. (NQA)
