Christner, Catherine; And Others
This report describes an evaluation of the Austin (Texas) Independent School District's (AISD) Chapter 1 and Chapter 1 Migrant programs. Chapter 1 is a federally funded compensatory educational program that provided funding in 1990-91 to 25 AISD elementary schools with high concentrations of low-income students. Chapter 1 Migrant is also a federally funded program that provided compensatory reading services to migrant students at 11 AISD elementary and secondary campuses in 1990-91. The study's major findings are as follows: (1) students served by the Supplementary Program made greater than a year's gain in their reading comprehension scores; (2) at Walnut Creek, students in grades 2 and 5 made over a year's gain in reading comprehension, while students in grade 3 made only an 0.2 gain; (3) on an October 1990 achievement test, Walnut Creek students averaged the highest master levels; (4) Chapter 1 Migrant teachers and tutors provided instructional services to 175 migrant students (52 percent of those eligible); (5) all six of the institutions for neglected or delinquent students met their goals for the 1990-91 school year; and (6) the attendance of both Chapter 1 Regular and Chapter 1 Migrant parents at Parent Advisory Council meetings decreased. Eighteen figures illustrate the text. Included are a list of participating schools, definitions, and seven references. (JB)
