Abstract

This study established the extent to which ESEA Title III Minigrant projects funded in 1973-75 were continuing in Nevada during the 1977-78 school term. Characteristics of the institution and of the innovation found by the Rand Corporation to influence incorporation (continuation) were then compared to four levels of program continuation. Thirty-seven of the forty-two minigrant recipients provided the two sets of data, and the chi-square ((chi)('2)) test was applied to determine that the following Rand Study characteristics inferred continuation of minigrants: strong administrative support, dominant staff training model, active consumer demand, congruence with local priorities, and activities which replace local practices.
