It is important to note that Title I is an educational program designed to provide compensatory education for the disadvantaged. Title I money should be used to supplement and not supplant state and local funds.

Section II contains the log of activities of on-site monitoring visitations of Title I programs in the Illinois Local Educational Agency. The logs and analyses prepared in this section will discuss the purpose, scope and descriptions of the programs monitored. Recommendations, strengths and weaknesses of the Title I programs in the local school districts will be analyzed in this section.

The selected activity analysis in Section III reviews the United States Office of Education monitoring criteria of the Illinois Office of Education. This section discusses a Title I program in Illinois in its entirety. Monitoring conducted by the U.S.O.E. for the purpose of evaluating the monitoring criteria used by the State Educational Agency.
