This document presents effectiveness charts that demonstrate the impact of various programs of the Austin (Texas) Independent School District (AISD) on strategic objectives of the district and executive summaries of all reports produced by the AISD's Office of Research and Evaluation in 1990-91. The programs described in the effectiveness charts are complex efforts to provide services to students within the context of other school-based interventions. The charts summarize the relationships between cost per student and effectiveness, defined in terms of the following recently adopted strategic objectives for 1992-97: (1) every student will function at his or her optimal level of achievement and will progress through the system successfully; (2) all students will function successfully at or above international standards; (3) 100 percent of students will graduate; (4) after graduating, all students will be able to perform successfully at their next endeavors; and (5) the AISD will upgrade the quality of course content and instructional effectiveness. In addition to these charts, the executive summaries of 24 evaluation reports are included. Six tables in the report and two graphs and four tables in the executive summaries present details of AISD programs. Ninety-four references are grouped by topic. (SLD)
