Title I Elementary School Reading and Mathematics Programs. Final Evaluation Report, 1980-81.
Public Affairs Research Inst., Wellesley, MA.
This report evaluates Boston's Title I Elementary Reading and Mathematics School Programs for 1980-81. Ninety-eight percent of students enrolled in the programs received Title I instruction five days a week. Instruction was highly individualized, and teachers and aides used individualized daily planning. On the average, students attended school on about 80 percent of the possible days of service. Overall, test results on the math program, for all grades, and for public, private, and parochial schools, were uniformly favorable. As a total group, students made reading gains at all grade levels. Some differences were found among the subgroups, however. The program's efficiency and effectiveness, in terms of selection and scheduling, administration, curriculum and instruction, communication, facilities and materials, and student progress were for the most part rated positively by all concerned. Parental involvement, however, received positive ratings only from Parent Advisory Council (PAC) members and parents. Overall, compliance with federal guidelines concerning school PACs was observed.
