ESEA Title I Grants to Local Education Agencies: A Summary of State Reports for 1979-80, 1980-81, and 1981-82.
ESEA Title I, now Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act of 1981, was designed to provide financial assistance to local education agencies to meet the special needs of educationally deprived children, with funds used to provide supplemental instructional support service. Starting with the 1979-80 school year, each state education agency reported annually on the number of students served and their achievement gains, as well as on the number of staff members and parents involved in the program. This report summarizes the state reports for the 1979-80, 1980-81, and 1981-82 school years from the 45 states with complete data for all 3 years. Information is provided on the following: (1) funding for Title I students; (2) the number and grade levels of students served; (3) services received; (4) number of staff members employed in Title I projects; (5) number of staff members who received Title I funded training; (6) advisory council and parent activities; (7) number of Title I participants, services received, and staff employed during the summer term; and (8) nonpublic school participants. Finally, achievement data are reported by grade level for reading and math during each of the three years. A list of references is included, along with two appendixes providing (1) achievement test results for students tested fall-to-spring and (2) tables for 1981-82 Title I data. (TE)
