A SPECIAL PROGRAM FOR IN-MIGRANT AND TRANSIENT CHILDREN IN DEPRESSED AREAS. PROJECT PROPOSAL.
Milwaukee Public Schools, WI.
PROPOSED IS THE ESTABLISHMENT OF SIX EXPERIMENTAL CENTERS IN MILWAUKEE TO WHICH IN-MIGRANT CHILDREN WOULD BE REFERRED WHEN APPLYING FOR PUBLIC SCHOOL ADMISSION. BECAUSE THE SCHOOLS FACE SO MANY PROBLEMS IN PROPERLY PLACING THESE CHILDREN, INITIAL ENTRY INTO AN ORIENTATION CENTER WHICH WOULD STUDY, TEST, AND OFFER REMEDIATION WHEN NECESSARY SEEMS ADVISABLE. WHEN THEY ARE READY, THE CHILDREN WILL BE SHIFTED TO THE APPROPRIATE REGULAR OR SPECIAL CLASSES. THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM WILL BE SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR THESE CHILDREN, AND PSYCHOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL SERVICES WILL BE AVAILABLE. CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES WILL INCLUDE USE OF AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS IN TEACHING BASIC SKILLS AND INSTRUCTION IN ENGLISH USAGE. PARENT INVOLVEMENT WILL ALSO BE AN INTEGRAL FEATURE. STAFF WILL INCLUDE REGULAR SCHOOL PERSONNEL ASSIGNED TO THE PROJECT, A SOCIAL WORKER-COORDINATOR, A PSYCHOLOGIST, AND A LANGUAGE SPECIALIST. INSERVICE TEACHER EDUCATION ACTIVITIES WILL BE PART OF THE PROJECT. A REQUEST FOR FUNDING FOR THREE YEARS IS MADE TO PERMIT A FAIR EVALUATION OF THE PROJECT'S EFFECTIVENESS. (NH)
