Christner, Catherine A.; And Others
The Austin (Texas) Independent School District undertakes its annual Program Overlap study to examine the numbers of students being served by special or compensatory programs. In 1985-86, these programs served 13,817 students at 79 elementary and secondary schools. Programs or student groups included: (1) 1- and 5-year Migrant Students Served by a Migrant Teacher; (2) 1- and 5-year Migrant Students Not Served by a Migrant Teacher; (3) Education Improvement and Consolidation Act Chapter 1 Regular Program; (4) Chapter 1 Schoolwide Project; (5) State Compensatory Education--Elementary; (6) State Compensatory Education--Schoolwide Project; (7) Bilingual Education; (8) English as a Second Language Program for Limited-English-Proficient (LEP) Students; (9) LEP Bilingual Instruction as Part of Special Education; (10) Hispanic LEP Students in Title VII Project Schools; (11) Special Education; (12) Teach and Reach Program--Reading and/or Mathematics; and (13) PLUS Supplemental Program, in reading and/or mathematics. Of the total, 11,460 (82.9%) students were served by one program; 2,081 (15.1%) by two programs; and 276 (2%) by three or four programs. Comparison with figures from the three previous years show a trend toward slightly larger percentages of students enrolled in two or more programs. Tables present duplicated and unduplicated counts of students participating in each combination of programs, by individual school and across all schools, including new categories for some eligible students who are not served.
