Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Federal Assistance.
This 26th annual report summarizes recent activities in Ohio that were provided by Chapter 1 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Chapter 1 authorizes a federally funded compensatory program for several groups of educationally disadvantaged children. Initial discussion explains the Chapter 1 services provided by Ohio's public school districts and gives a statistical overview of the program for 1987-1991. More detailed information is given on: (1) statistics for fiscal 1991; (2) participation trends; (3) instructional areas, including the impact of reading and mathematics instruction; (4) expenditure patterns; (5) staff positions; (6) in-service education; (7) parent involvement and Parent Advisory Councils; and (8) a summary of successes. Additional information on special programs covers migrant children, children with disabilities, and neglected or delinquent children. The statistics show that the program helps children become successful learners and that its supplemental services have a beneficial impact. Thirty-four tables supplement the text. (LB)
