Chapter 1: Chapter 1/Migrant, 1993-94. Evaluation Findings.
Catterson, Shirin; And Others
Chapter 1, a federally funded compensatory education program, provided funding to 31 elementary schools with high concentrations of low-income students in the Austin (Texas) Independent School District (AISD) through the following components: (1) nonschoolwide projects of supplementary instruction; (2) schoolwide projects (SWP) in the most disadvantaged schools; (3) full-day kindergarten classes; (4) additional services in one nonpublic school and nine institutions for the neglected or delinquent; (5) Chapter 1 Migrant programs for migrant students; and (6) parent and community involvement programs. Evaluation of these programs focused on language and achievement gains. All Chapter 1 programs met the required gains in prekindergarten, and 21 of 25 met requirements for kindergarten. Less than half (18 of 31) of Chapter 1 schools met the required level of reading comprehension for their first grade Chapter 1 students. The majority of the schools improved their passing rates on the Texas Academic Assessment. Programs new to Chapter 1, such as Reading Recovery, were expanded to 20 elementary schools. Fifty-six tables and 61 figures present evaluation findings. Three attachments present supplemental information about some programs. (Contains 9 references.) (SLD)
