State (SEA's) Assistance in Identifying Outstanding and Lower Performing Chapter 1 Student Achievement at the Program and Individual Level.
Eberhardt, Clifford
Assistance offered by the State Department of Education to school districts in Oregon to help them identify aspects of student achievement under Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act (Hawkins Stafford Amendments of 1988) is discussed. Two hundred ninety-five of the 297 Oregon public school districts have Chapter 1 programs, serving a total of approximately 45,000 students. High and low performing districts are identified through standardized test scores and annual evaluation data, a process enhanced by help from the Technical Assistance Center of the Northwest Regional Laboratory. A system that considers a number of factors identifies programs needing staff attention. Summer sessions provide training for Chapter 1 coordinators. The state defines achievement goals for the districts and receives achievement reports at group and individual levels. A new focus on student achievement will be provided with the Accelerated Learning Programs for Successful Students, a program that Oregon will implement to increase the rate of learning for Chapter 1 students. Three exhibits provide information about program functions and staff. (SLD)
