Parental Information and Resource Centers Program - 2003

CFDA Number: 84.310 - Parental Assistance Centers


Goal 8: To increase information and options for parents.
Objective 8.1 of 1: Federally funded PIRC programs provide parents of children attending schools that are not making adequate yearly progress with the information they need to understand their State accountability systems and their rights and opportunities for supplemental services and public school choice.
Indicator 8.1.1 of 1: The number of parents of children attending schools that are not making adequate yearly progress, who are participating in PIRC activities designed to provide them with the information necessary to understand their State Accountability systems and the rights and opportunities for supplemental services and public school choice afforded to their children under section 1116 of the ESEA.

Progress: This will be a new indicator based on a program priority. There is insufficient information available to pre-determine a reasonable baseline number for the first year. Consequently, actual data collected for the first year will serve as the baseline and growth based on that number will be used to establish the performance targets for succeeding years. In 2003, the number of parents of children attending schools that are notmaking adequate yearly progress reported to have received the information they need to understand their State Accountability systems and the options available to them under section 1116of the ESEA will establish the baseline for performance targets in succeeding years. For 2004, the target will be 5 percent above baseline. For 2005, the target will increase by 10 percent above baseline; and for 2006, the target will increase by 15 percent above the baseline established in 2003.

Explanation: Performance reporting requirements for the PIRC program are being revised to incorporate the collection of information needed to respond to this indicator.
