Describes how the addition of a new responsibility to the Title IV mandate — the delivery of services to eliminate sex discrimination in school districts — has affected the ongoing Title IV mission of assisting the process of racial desegregation in schools. General assistance centers, state education agencies, and training institutes were surveyed by mail questionnaire to gain information on project activities and organization. Site visits were also made to a sample of each project type. The analysis draws heavily upon data collected for a 1976 study that described and evaluated Title IV's racial desegregation services to school districts in varying stages of desegregation. On balance, the analysis shows that the addition of sex desegregation services has not changed the basic operational style of the three types of Title IV projects examined. Even with the addition of the new type of assistance, there is still a distinct mix of activities that each project type does well. (See also R-1901/1, R-1901/2.)
