Texas Child Migrant Program.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Migrant and Preschool Programs.
The aim of the Texas Child Migrant Program is that each school district develop a migrant program designed to meet the special educational needs of the children of that school system. All districts are encouraged to implement new ideas, activities, and changes which show promise of improving the education of migrant children. Objectives of the program are (1) to provide assistance to local education agencies having a high concentration of migrant children in order that these agencies may operate comprehensive educational programs and provide ancillary services to meet the unique needs of migrant children, (2) to develop and conduct staff development programs for personnel in the Texas Child Migrant Program, (3) to cooperate with other state education agencies in improving educational programs and in developing record transfer systems for migrant children, and (4) to coordinate the activities of cooperating agencies serving migrant children in Texas. The Texas Plan for direct assistance to local education agencies for special educational programs for children of migrant agricultural workers consists of a child migrant school program, a child migrant preschool program, a demonstration school, staff and program development, a Texas migrant educational development center, summer institutes for migrant school personnel, an interstate cooperation project, and summer school programs for migrants.
