Evaluation of Effectiveness, Title VI. National Summary. Innovative Education Program Strategies, Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
This report contains summary information submitted by 44 states (plus one private nonprofit school bypass agent) for the evaluation of effectiveness of programs and activities funded under Title VI, Innovative Education Program Strategies. The purpose of this national summary is to provide critical information to decision-makers and other interested parties about the use and effectiveness of Title VI funds. The report summarizes survey data collected from participating public school districts, private nonprofit schools, and state educational agencies on the use and effectiveness of Title VI formula entitlement funds and state set-aside funds. Findings show that the highest percentage of funds was allocated for library services and materials, whereas the lowest percentage of funds was spent in combining funds for Title I schoolwide programs. Teachers in public school districts were the largest personnel groups funded in full or in part from Title VI funds. The impact of Title VI on students shows that across public school districts, private nonprofit schools, and state educational agencies, students in grades 1-5 benefited most from programs funded in full or in part by Title VI, followed by students in grades 9-12 and students in grades 6-8. Four appendices provide an overview of Title VI funding, national Title VI data submission, and other information. (RJM)
