Title II Final Report, 1993-94.
Title II of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, reauthorized under the Hawkins Stafford Amendments, provides federal funds for the improvement of mathematics and science teaching at all levels of elementary and secondary education, targeting improvement of teacher skills, instructional quality, and student access to instruction. In 1993-94 the Austin Independent School District (AISD) (Texas) received $206,662 from Title II funds, plus carryover for a total of $344,795. A total of 1,034 AISD teachers and administrators attended workshops or conferences sponsored with Title II funds, and this number included an increase in male participants of about 10%. A total of 832 AISD staff members at all levels attended workshops devoted to Title II topics (mathematics and science) in the school year, and others assisted with Title II funds or attended mathematics and science conferences. A mathematics specialist was hired to address school district concerns with middle school and junior high school mathematics underachievement. Based on these evaluation findings, recommendations are presented for continuing funding and participation, with emphasis on minority teacher recruitment and support.
