True, Douglas; Ehda, Patty
Designed as a handbook for primary grade parent volunteers in Kings County Schools (California), this publication provides information on compensatory education and parent involvement. The following special programs are explained briefly: Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), Title IVB of the ESEA, Senate Bill 90 for Educationally Disadvantaged Youth (SB-90 EDY), Early Childhood Education (ECE), and the Miller Unruh Reading Program. Instructional and instructional support components of a school plan (developed as a result of a needs assessment) are listed and discussed briefly. The components are in the areas of reading, language development, mathematics, multicultural education, health and auxiliary services, staff development, parent involvement, and parent education. Concluding this handbook are lists of the common physical, emotional, and intellectual characteristics of children from kindergarten to grade three. These lists include guidelines for parents in helping their children at these different ages. (EM)
