Friedman, Myron; And Others
To collect and disseminate information relevant to the accountability and program components of the Title I Migrant Program in the Austin school district and to report to the Texas Education Agency through interim and final reports on how well the migrant program is meeting its stated objectives for 1978-79 are the functions of the evaluation for which this design is prepared. The evaluation design focuses on the program's major activities: student recruitment, parental involvement, instructional program from pre-kindergarten through high school, and health and clothing support services. For components of six major questions pertaining to the current contract procedures used with externally funded personnel and the program's instructional, health services, parental involvement components, the evaluation design lists dates decisions are to be made, dates information is needed, relevant evaluation questions and objectives, and information sources. The evaluation design describes how the following data will be collected: (1) needs assessment data--number of migrant students enrolled in the district and where, their achievement levels, and degree to which migrant students are served by other compensatory programs; (2) process data--how well proposed activities are implemented; and (3) outcome data--program impact on achievement of migrant students. An outline of the evaluation time resources allocation for personnel is included. (RS)
