Kansas Chapter 1 1992-1993 Evaluation.
Kansas State Board of Education, Topeka.
The 1992-93 analysis of the Kansas Chapter 1 evaluation results is described. In the 1992-93 school year, 100 percent (304) of Kansas districts participated in the Chapter 1 program. Approximately 7 percent of the student population participated in Chapter 1 programs, and 82 percent were in grades 1 through 6. A majority of these students were White (not Hispanic) (69%), but Blacks (18.6 percent), Hispanic Americans (9.6 percent), and other minority groups were also represented. Nearly 64 percent ($24 million) of Chapter 1 funds were spent on reading and language-arts activities, with about $9.8 million spent on mathematics. Expenditures for Chapter 1 summer programs increased in this school year. The statewide evaluation, which was conducted using multiple methods, supports the effectiveness of the Chapter 1 programs in Kansas. The average gains of Kansas students at most grade levels in both reading and mathematics were greater than would have been expected to occur without the intervention of Chapter 1 programs. Eighty-six percent of districts demonstrated gains in reading achievement, and 87 percent showed similar results in mathematics. An enclosure summarizes the evaluation results with 13 graphs. Eighteen tables and three figures present information in the body of the report. (SLD)
