State ESEA Title I Participation Information for 1998-99: Final Summary Report.
This report summarizes data for two components of the Title I program: (1) Title I Grants to Local Educational Agencies; and (2) the State Agency Program for Neglected or Delinquent Children and Youth. Important program-management data regarding several aspects of the Title I program for 1998-99 are presented in six sections: district, schools, and students served, the range of instructional and support services provided, Title I staffing patterns, and schools' progress toward meeting performance standards, as reported by states on Title I State Performance reports. State-by-state tables serve to illustrate the text; they amplify the participation data and offer a more detailed look at several aspects of the Title I program. For 1998-99, data were submitted beginning in December 1999 and continuing through 2000. Unfortunately, data are incomplete or missing because one-fifth of the states had not submitted data as of mid-January 2001, indicating problems with timeliness and accuracy of state-reported data. The Department of Education is currently working with these delinquent states to improve the quality of data collection and reporting. (Contains 22 tables and 13 figures.) (RT)
