A Strategy for Monitoring Desegregation Implementation in the Chicago Public Schools (Fiscal Years 1983-1986).
A Desegregation Commission's monitoring strategy is described. It addresses the goal of gathering and evaluating information in order to assure the constitutionally guaranteed educational equity in the Chicago (Illinois) Public Schools under that system's desegregation plan. The monitoring strategy would focus on the following five areas: (1) fiscal equity in allocation and expenditure patterns across categories of schools designated in the desegregation plan; (2) experiences and consequences of implementing a voluntary transfer policy; (3) perceptions and expectations of critical actors in the local school action system; (4) monthly and quarterly reviews of core monitoring indicators; and (5) test data and achievement scores by minority status. The strategy will also include consultation with relevant Board of Education staff. The Monitoring Commission will prepare a series of reports for members of the Board of Education. The system superintendent, and the general public. The following main sections of the paper describe the Commission's plan: (1) areas of inquiry; (2) design and data sources; (3) anticipated products; (4) a tentative work plan; (5) a supplementary budget for the first year; and (6) a projected budget for the second year of operation.
