Ohio Association of Administrators of State and Federal Education Programs.; Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Federal Assistance.
Although federal funds comprise less than 7 percent of all educational spending in Ohio, the programs they fuel benefit thousands of children each year. This report summarizes data for fiscal year 1997 on federal programs authorized through Titles I, II, IV, VI, and VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and through the McKinney Homeless Assistance Act. Most of the report is concerned with Title I programs, operated in 592 of Ohio's 611 school districts. In fiscal 1997, Title I programs served 296,202 students who lived in low-income families, institutions for neglected or delinquent children, or foster homes, as well as 2,953 migrant students in preschool and grades K-12. Details are provided on federal funding, institutional participation, student participation by institutional type and grade span, instructional services, student performance on state proficiency tests, expenditure patterns, teachers and staff, professional development, parent involvement, and successes. Profiles describe: (1) Title II, the Eisenhower Professional Development Program, which funded training for over 38,000 educators; (2) Title IV, Safe Drug-Free Schools, which funded prevention and intervention programs; (3) Title VI, Innovative Assistance Program, which encourages comprehensive education reform; (4) Title VII, Lau Resource Center, which funded services for immigrant students and those with limited English proficiency; and (5) education for homeless children and youth. Contains photographs, data tables, and figures. (SV)
