"Success for All": An Evaluation of the Title I Program at Four Elementary Schools, 1995-96 through 1997-1998.
Sundberg, Barbara J.; Stayrook, Nick
This report presents results from a 3-year evaluation of the Title I "Success for All" (SFA) schoolwide program being implemented at four elementary schools in the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District, Alaska. SFA meets the criteria of Title I regulations and has a strong reading component with frequent assessments of student progress, individual tutoring, family support, and staff development. The evaluation looks at overall statistical profiles of the Title I schools and overall national percentiles on the California Achievement Test. Parent surveys studied attitudes toward SFA. Results of the evaluation show that Success for All is well-implemented at one school, where students are making good progress in reading. Reading scores at another SFA school are acceptable, but in two of the four schools, reading scores are surprisingly lower than expected. At one of these schools, the staff has implemented the SFA program so successfully that the school has been made a demonstration site, so the low reading scores are especially unexpected. Recommendations are made for future evaluations of SFA schools. Three appendixes contain statistical profiles of the four schools, tables of results from the parent survey, and written comments from the parent surveys. (Contains 46 tables and 9 figures.) (SLD)
