Title I is a program of aid to education under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. This treatise will be concerned with the formulation and implementation of the Title I program at Whittler Junior High School in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, during the summer of 1966. The Title I program at Whittler Junior High ls one of the many innovations to be found in this program of federal aid to education. The range of programs acceptable under Title I is as great as the ingenuity of individual administrators and teachers. Of course, certain specifics must be met before a program is approved. These will be discussed in the ensuing chapter. This writers motives for undertaking a research project which was concerned with the Title I program were as follows: To provide some insight into the reasons for and objectives of the federally financed Title I program. To acquaint interested people with some of the criteria necessary for developing Title I programs. To show an example of one of the many possible innovations for aiding school children under this relatively recent phase of federal aid to education. Expanding on the relatively limited body of knowledge dealing with Title I ls a leas specific motive for undertaking this study, but, nevertheless it is important.
