State ESEA Title I Participation Information for 1999-2000. Final Summary Report.
This report summarizes data for two components of the Title I program: the Title I Grants to Local Education Agencies (LEAs) and the State Agency Program for Neglected or Delinquent Children and Youth. The Title I Grants to LEAs provide federal financial assistance to eligible school districts and schools to assist them in providing opportunities for children most at risk, helping them acquire knowledge and skills to meet challenging state content and performance standards. Title I participation data are presented for 1999-2000 as well as comparisons with 1998-99 and previous years. The areas discussed in this report include districts, 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 follow the text amplifying the participation data and offering readers a more detailed look at several aspects of the Title I program. For 1999-2000, data were submitted beginning in December 2000 and continuing through 2001. Data quality and timeliness are issues, and the U.S. Department of Education is working with states to improve the quality and timeliness of submissions. (Contains 27 tables and 16 figures.) (RT)
