Chapter 1, Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, authorizes federal assistance for state and local programs of education for disadvantaged elementary and secondary school pupils. Its appropriation for fiscal year (FY) 1989 is $4.6 billion. Chapter 1 has been reauthorized and comprehensively revised by the 100th Congress, under P.L. 100-297, the Augustus F. Hawkins-Robert T. Stafford Elementary and Secondary School Improvement Amendments of 1988, or "Hawkins-Stafford Act." Most of these amendments will take place during the 1989-90 program year. The following aspects of the Hawkins-Stafford Act are outlined: (1) allocation formula revisions; (2) incentives to enhance accountability and improve performance; (3) parent involvement; (4) services to non-public school pupils; (5) targeting of Chapter 1 funds and services; (6) programs for dropout prevention and secondary school basic skills improvement; (7) early childhood programs: Even Start; and (8) federal, state, and local program administration.
