Explanation: For 2006 we are considering this a new measure because this program is no longer a Federal discretionary program but rather administrated by states. As a result a different data collection instrument is now being used. These two changes mean that the data collected before 2004 are no longer comparable with data for 2004 and beyond.
 
Indicator 1.4 of 4: Behavior: Students participating in the program will show improvement through measures such as attendance, classroom performance, and decreased disciplinary action or other adverse behaviors.
 
Measure 1.4.1 of 1: The percentage of students with teacher-reported improvements in student behavior.
