THE COLORADO PROGRAM FOR THE EDUCATION OF MIGRANT CHILDREN, A GUIDE TO ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES FOR PARTICIPATING SCHOOL DISTRICTS.
POTTS, ALFRED M.
THE GENERAL PURPOSE OF THE COLORADO MIGRANT CHILDREN EDUCATIONAL ACT OF 1961 IS TO PROVIDE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE CHILDREN OF MIGRATORY AGRICULTURAL WORKERS WHO ARE RESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES BUT NOT PERMANENTLY DOMICILED IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. ITS INTENT IS TO PROVIDE SCHOOL EXPERIENCES AND FACILITIES WHICH WILL BE APPROPRIATE TO THE NEEDS AND ABILITIES OF THESE CHILDREN, AND EQUIVALENT TO THOSE PROVIDED FOR PERMANENT RESIDENTS. IMPLICIT IN THE PROGRAM IS THE NEED FOR ALL CITIZENS TO RECOGNIZE THEIR RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE FULLEST DEVELOPMENT OF EACH CHILD'S POTENTIAL. AS MIGRATORY FAMILIES MOVE FROM ONE WORK LOCATION TO ANOTHER IT IS CONSIDERED THE DUTY OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEMS OF COLORADO TO PROVIDE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE CHILDREN, TO WELCOME THEM INTO THE SCHOOLS WHEREVER THEY ARE TEMPORARILY LOCATED, AND IN EVERY WAY TO ENCOURAGE ENROLLMENT AND REGULAR ATTENDANCE DURING WHATEVER PERIOD A CHILD IS IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. INDEED, THE ACT REQUIRES SCHOOL AUTHORITIES TO ENFORCE ATTENDANCE OF MIGRANT CHILDREN DURING REGULAR TERMS IN THE SAME MANNER AS IS DONE WITH ALL OTHER STUDENTS. (GC)
