State Disadvantaged Child Project. Evaluation Report, 1981-82.
The State Disadvantaged Child Project provides supplementary support services for 6,000 children residing in a low income core area and attending 10 elementary schools and 1 high school in Portland, Oregon. The project also covers other children, allocating funds to the Albina Youth Opportunity School (AYOS), Early Childhood Education Centers, and to a school program for Gypsy children. The funds provide personnel for physical education, music, nutrition, library services, teachers, aides, and/or support specialists. This report evaluates the achievement of the project. Section I provides an overall description of the programs which make up the State Disadvantaged Child project, including: sending school programs (whereby children residing within the boundaries of these school services may attend schools outside the care area); receiving school programs (whereby 15 schools receive students from the inner city care area); and special school programs. Section II summarizes the achievement data compiled for participating students, while section III contains budgetary information, and section IV presents a summary of the findings. In general, achievements of participating students were found to be comparable to or better than those of other District students, with upper grade students showing more gains than others. Appended is an end-of-the year report submitted by the Albina Youth Opportunity School. (AOS)
