Abstract

This report is the third annual report of <bapter 2 programs supported under the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act of 1981 (ECIA) implemented in Iowa schools during the 1986 fiscal year. The Iowa State Department of Education has prepared this report in compliance with Section 564 (a) (5) which states: "beginning with fiscal year 1984, provides for an annual evaluation of the effectiveness of programs assisted under this chapter, which shall include comments of the advisory committee, and shall be made available to the public." Information contained in this report has been summarized from department staff reports, school district evaluation reports, and approved application data. Explicated data are maintained in department files. This report indicates that Chapter 2, for the 1986 fiscal year, has been successful in reducing the raper work of local districts, allowing more local planning and flexibility in the use of "block grant" funds for educational purposes, and the impact of the use of such funds for such purposes on behalf of large numbers of children. In addition, the concerns noted by federal on-site auditors were transmitted to local school districts by the state consultative staff reducing the number of exceptional practices.
