California Plan for the Education of Migrant Children. Evaluation Report: July 1, 1969 - June 30, 1970.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Bureau of Community Services and Migrant Education.
California's efforts to meet the educational needs of migrant children during the 1970 fiscal year are described in this evaluation report. The California Plan provides (1) supplementary educational services by regional components to migrant children in impacted school districts, (2) particular types of services by multi-regional components, and (3) statewide and interstate activities to assure continuity and coordination of educational services to migrant children. Techniques used to collect subjective data on program effectiveness inlcuded questionnaires, opinionnaires, anecdotal records, rating scales, diaries, and interview records. Information was obtained on such factors as teacher attitudes toward migrant children, workshop effectiveness, teacher estimates of pupil growth, effectiveness of paraprofessional personnel, and suitability of materials and methods employed in the programs. It is noted that, of an estimated 80,000 school-aged children defined as migrants, 48,376 received services with 1970 funds. In addition, almost 28,000 migrant children were screened for various health defects, of which 10,607 children received medical treatment. Although no new programs were introduced during the 1970 fiscal year, services were extended to children in an additional 13 school districts.
