MIGRANT CHILDREN SUMMER SCHOOL PILOT PROGRAM.
JONGEWARD, RAY E.; AND OTHERS
THE SUMMER SCHOOL PILOT PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN OF MIGRATORY WORKERS ATTEMPTED TO DEVELOP INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNIQUES RELATED TO THE SPECIFIC LEARNING DIFFICULTIES OF MIGRANT CHILDREN, TO HELP MIGRANT CHILDREN OVERCOME EDUCATIONAL DEFICIENCIES, AND TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF PROVIDING SUMMER SCHOOL OPPORTUNITIES FOR MIGRANT CHILDREN. THE COST, FINANCED BY THE STATE AND THE LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT, WAS APPROXIMATELY $1,160 FOR 32 STUDENTS FOR A 6-WEEK PERIOD. TRANSPROTATION WAS INCLUDED. SUCCESS WAS CREDITED TO AN ENTHUSIASTIC AND UNDERSTANDING TEACHER WHO VISITED WITH THE ASSISTANT TEACHERS, INTERESTING INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, A VARIETY OF ACTIVITIES, AND PROVISION OF TRANSPORTATION. IMPROVED ATTITUDES TO LEARNING AND TO SCHOOL WERE APPARENT IN PUPILS AND IN PARENTS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT MIGRATORY WORKERS WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SUMMER SCHOOLS AND CHILDREN WILL ATTEND REGULARLY. HOWEVER, A PLANNED INFORMATION PROGRAM THAT UTILIZES THE NATIVE TONGUE IS NECESSARY. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT THE PROGRAM BE CONTINUED, THAT ADDITIONAL SUMMER PILOT PROGRAMS BE ESTABLISHED, THAT APPROXIMATELY $10,000 BE BUDGETED FOR SUMMER SCHOOLS DURING 1963-65, THAT SCHOOL DISTRICTS EXPLORE THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING LABORATORY EXPERIENCES FOR STUDENT TEACHERS IN THE SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAMS, AND THAT MORE DETAILED ENROLLMENT AND ATTENDANCE RECORDS BE ACQUIRED TO UNDERSTAND THE NATURE AND EXTENT OF THE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF MIGRANT CHILDREN IN WASHINGTON SCHOOLS. PHOTOGRAPHIC ILLUSTRATIONS AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY ACCOMPANY THE REPORT.
