State of Utah, Chapter 1: 1990-91 Annual Report.
Utah State Office of Education, Salt Lake City.
The primary goal of the federally funded Chapter 1 program is to improve the educational opportunities of educationally deprived children by helping them to: (1) succeed in the regular program, (2) attain grade-level proficiency, and (3) improve in the basic and more advanced skills that all children are expected to master. This report examines the status of the Chapter 1 education program in the State of Utah during 1990-91, including 12 graphic charts depicting various program measurements. Following basic information about the Chapter 1 program, charts provide details on the numbers of public schools and students served by Chapter 1, the numbers of students served per service, and achievement scores for each of the services within the program. It is noted that, overall, 31,000 students were served during the 1990-91 school year, of which 78.6 percent were White, 10.5 percent were Hispanic, and 6 percent were Black. An appendix displays the percent of low income populations within various counties of the state, as well as the state's average percentage of the population designated as low income; and a list of the school districts receiving Chapter 1 grants, the number of students served, and the amount of funding.
