TITLE VI 1997-98. FEEDBACK, Publication No. 97.11.
Smith, Ralph; Griffith, Julia
Title VI of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended in 1994, provides federal funds to states to contribute to the improvement of elementary (including preschool) and secondary educational programs in both public and private schools. Title VI funds supplement or increase local funds, but may not be used to supplant them. The 1997-98 allocation of Title VI funds to the Austin Independent School District (AISD) of $414,630 was based on public and private school enrollments and the numbers of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunches. This program summary presents the allocation, expenditure, number of students served and staff funded, and cost per student/staff for each Title VI program. These programs included: (1) expenses associated with a coordinator of volunteers; (2) library resources; (3) funding for a mathematics specialist for the school district; (4) equipment and supplies for private nonprofit schools; (5) a science workshop; (6) visiting teachers for extra student support; (7) Reading Recovery programs; (8) funding for intervention specialists; and (9) scholarships to a summer program.
