The Study of Education Resources and Federal Funding (SERFF) examined the allocation and use of funds provided to school districts and schools through the Goals 2000 and five of the largest Elementary and Secondary Education Act programs for fiscal year 1997, corresponding to the 1997-1998 school year. The six federal programs included in this study are: (1) Title I, Part A, grants to local education agencies to help disadvantaged children meet high standards; (2) Title II, the Eisenhower Challenge Fund; (3) Title III, the Technology Literacy Challenge Fund; (4) Title IV, state and local agency programs for safe and drug-free schools; (5) Title VI, innovative education program strategies; and (6) Goals 2000, state and local systemic improvement. This document contains two technical appendixes for the final report on the SERFF. The first, "Data Tabulations," contains 126 detailed tables of data about the schools and school districts studied. The second appendix, "Data Collection Instruments," contains the questionnaires used in the study and requests for documents and materials that were sent to local and state administrators. (SLD)
