Nevada Chapter 2 Projects. State Evaluation Report. School Year 1990-91.
Smith, David Lawson
This document is the first of a series of annual evaluation reports of educational programs throughout Nevada that are supported by funds from Chapter 2 of the Hawkins-Stafford Elementary and Secondary School Improvement Amendments of 1988. Information was collected using four summary forms completed by district and school officials. The evaluative information collected suggested that the Chapter 2 supported projects were highly effective in delivering educational services and materials to students and educational staff. A large percentage of staff had been trained in a wide range of relevant professional development areas, including at-risk programs; and there is follow-up evidence that the training, information, and materials are being used repeatedly in the classroom. Materials acquisition funds opened the door to new educational technologies in both public and private schools. Nearly three-quarters of public and private schools met broadly ranging goals and objectives for their Direct Services to Students projects. The Effective Schools program has been initiated in a significant number of schools including schools identified by the individual districts as at-risk schools. Seventeen figures and 12 tables are included. An appendix contains the instruments used for data collection. (JB)
