The Distribution of Chapter 1 Services: Which School Districts and Schools Serve Students in Chapter 1? Chapter 1 Data from the Schools and Staffing Survey.
Anderson, Judith I.
A study was done of which school districts and schools serve students in Chapter 1 programs. Using data from the 1987-88 Schools and Staffing Survey, the analysis found the following: (1) over 90 percent of all public school districts provide Chapter 1 services, including 85 percent of the school districts in which no more than 1 in 10 students is eligible for free or reduced price lunch; (2) virtually all of the very needy districts receive Chapter 1 funds; (3) the least poor districts account for 19 percent of all of the public school districts that receive Chapter 1 funds; (4) nationwide, 60 percent of public schools and 20 percent of non-public schools enroll students who were served in Chapter 1 programs; (5) of the non-public schools, Roman Catholic schools were the most likely to enroll students served by Chapter 1; (6) among the public schools, elementary schools were most likely to provide Chapter 1 services; and (7) a large proportion of non-needy schools provide Chapter 1 (45 percent of the least needy elementary schools are Chapter 1 schools). Included are 13 tables; 7 bar graphs; an appendix containing additional data, unweighted numbers, and standard errors in 18 tables; and 4 references. (JB)
