Chapter 2--Discretionary. Final Technical Report.
Doss, David A.; Moede, Lauren Hall
The Austin Independent School District developed a proposal for Chapter 2-Discretionary funds to be used to offer enrichment and supplemental instruction at 12 schools experiencing significant losses of students resulting in low enrollment, racial balances with lower than expected Anglo percentages, and under-utilized building space. Eight schools were selected as Computer Literacy Program sites, and four schools were chosen for a Spanish as a Foreign Language Program. This evaluation report consists of two parts, one for the Computer Literacy Program and one for the Spanish as a Foreign Language Program. Each program went through a planning phase in which plans were developed which differed somewhat from those of the proposal. Each part of the report briefly discusses the changes made during the planning stage and then provides the major evaluation findings. Problems of externally-funded programs and their impact on school districts are discussed. (PN)
