This publication presents a summary of South Carolina's use of funds provided by Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act as an educational resource for educationally deprived children from 1985 to 1989, and identifies projects exhibiting the greatest gains in student achievement during fiscal year 1989. The report consists of two principal parts. The first part presents statistical data summarizing the impact of Chapter 1 resources statewide over the past five years in the following areas: (1) state allocation; (2) number of students participating; (3) participants by instructional category; (4) personnel employed to serve Chapter 1 students; (5) budget funds by type of service; (6) program effectiveness in terms of National Curve Equivalent (NCE) gains; (7) services provided for parents; and (8) number of professionals and paraprofessionals employed. The second part of the report describes 25 Chapter 1 projects that have exhibited significant gains at all grade levels served. The projects fall within the following categories: (1) readiness; (2) kindergarten; (3) reading; (4) mathematics; and (5) parent involvement. Each project description follows a similar format offering a concise overview and comparative information, including kinds of instructional materials and supplies used. These summaries are intended to provide a resource for ideas, to offer an array of potential solutions, and to stimulate districts to review other successful Chapter 1 programs. (AF)
