Implementation of Title I Schoolwide Projects and Their Impact on Schools. Spotlight on Student Success, No. 318.
This report provides a synopsis of findings from an interim report of an ongoing national study of Title I schoolwide programs conducted by the Laboratory for Student Success in conjunction with other Regional Educational Laboratories. The study is designed to develop a national database on program features, implementation requirements, and outcomes of Title I schoolwide projects in order to provide assistance to local schools with their own schoolwide projects. Initial findings from this study indicate that more effective schools are implementing the Title I schoolwide legislative expectations more faithfully than less effective schools. Teachers from more effective schools agreed that their schools were emphasizing high standards for all students and implementing instructional practices to promote academic achievement. Parent responses were not as favorable, with parents who speak a language other than English or are bilingual tending to rate the schools lower in most areas. Classroom observations indicate that students predominantly meet in large groups and are usually independently working on-task. The difference in instructional interaction time for more effective and less effective schools is not statistically significant. (Contains one figure and three references.) (SLD)
