(c) Evaluation activities.

(1) The New York State Advisory Council for title IV of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act has accepted full responsibility for evaluating the overall effectiveness of the title IV of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act program. Evaluation of the title IV of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act program has been a topic at every council meeting held during the past fiscal year. The evaluation plan for each fiscal year is developed in accord with State advisory council policies and subjected to their review with revisions being incorporated into the plan based on their recommendations. Status reports by evaluators concerning implementation of the evaluation plan have been presented to the advisory council at each of its meetings. These reports have been helpful in increasing the council's understanding of the evaluation process. The practice of utilizing status reports will be continued in fiscal year 1978.

(2) During the coming fiscal year, efforts will be made to generate special evaluation reports which will be particularly helpful to advisory council members in fulfilling their advisory role. These special reports will be timed to coincide with major policy determinations facing the council. Examples of proposed reports include: report on the status of the maintenance of effort problem under title IV of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act--parts B and C; report on the financial impact of the part B formula on various types of local districts; report on the outcomes of the monitoring process for part C projects; report on the utility of the part C strategy of transferring successes. Additional reports will be generated for selected part C strengthening projects.

(d) Reporting activities. During the 1978 Federal fiscal year, the advisory council plans to fulfill its reporting responsibilities as outlined in section 403(b) of The Elementary and Secondary Education Act through the publication of an annual report for fiscal year 1977. The report will discuss the council's activities, recommendations as well as its evaluation procedures and results. The report will be disseminated to local school districts and interested agencies and organizations throughout the State.
