HANDBOOK FOR THE FLORIDA MIGRATORY CHILD COMPENSATORY PROGRAM, PROGRAM ESTABLISHED UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF TITLE I ESEA. PRELIMINARY DRAFT.
CRENSHAW, JOSEPH W.; AND OTHERS
THE FLORIDA STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION HAS ESTABLISHED A STATE-WIDE COMPREHENSIVE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM FOR AGRICULTURAL MIGRANT CHILDREN. IN DEVELOPING THIS PROGRAM, EVERY EFFORT HAS BEEN MADE TO COORDINATE THE SERVICES AND EFFORTS OF OTHER AGENCIES WHICH HAVE BEEN AND STILL ARE ACTIVE WITH AGRICULTURAL MIGRANTS. THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN ORGANIZED TO INCLUDE FIVE ACTIVITIES WHICH ARE INTERRELATED, WITH ACTIVITIES TWO THROUGH FIVE SUPPORTING AND GIVING SUBSTANCE TO ACTIVITY ONE. THE FIRST ACTIVITY, SUPPLEMENTAL SPECIAL SERVICES AND EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, WAS DESIGNED TO FULFILL THE UNMET NEEDS OF MIGRANT CHILDREN. THE SECOND ACTIVITY INVOLVES THE UTILIZATION OF A MOBILE UNIT IN NON-SCHOOL SITUATIONS FOR ENRICHING THE EXPERIENCES OF MIGRANT CHILDREN. THE PURPOSE OF ACTIVITY THREE, INTERSTATE COORDINATION, IS TO INCREASE CONTINUITY IN THE MIGRANT CHILD'S EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM THROUGH THE USE OF STANDARDIZED TRANSFERRAL RECORDS, INTERSTATE CONFERENCES AND VISITATION, AND THE EXCHANGE OF CURRICULUM MATERIALS. THROUGH ACTIVITY FOUR, THE STAFF WORKING WITH MIGRANT CHILDREN WOULD RECEIVE EXTENSIVE PRE-SERVICE AND IN-SERVICE TRAINING. THE FIFTH ACTIVITY WOULD PROVIDE FOR AN EVALUATION OF THE INDIVIDUAL MIGRANT EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, THE FIELD TESTING OF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, AND THE DISSEMINATION OF PERTINENT INFORMATION TO MIGRANT EDUCATION.
