Chapter 1 is a program funded by the Federal Government to help children who are at a disadvantage in school. Parents have many questions about Chapter 1 programs. This brochure presents many of the questions that parents have asked over the years about how Chapter 1 works. Because every school district's Chapter 1 programs are different, the questions outnumber the answers. Initially, the following five major questions are addressed: (1) What is Chapter 1? (2) Who benefits from Chapter 1? (3) What are some typical Chapter 1 services? (4) Do Chapter 1 programs need to show results? and (5) How can parents help their children in Chapter 1? An overview of Chapter 1 describes the instruction usually given in reading, language arts, and mathematics. Chapter 1 money must expand the education children already get in regular classes. Because Chapter 1 programs are subject to evaluation, they must demonstrate that students are improving. The sample questions parents may want to ask in their own schools include questions about program operation and about the following: (1) curriculum; (2) achievement testing; and (3) progress reports. A glossary of 10 terms often used by teachers in talking about Chapter 1 is included. (SLD)
