Iowa: Annual Evaluation Report For Migrant Programs. Fiscal Year 1978.
Iowa State Dept. of Public Instruction, Des Moines.
During fiscal year 1978, seven migrant educational programs were operational in Iowa. Five programs were conducted during the regular school year with 139 children attending, 84 of whom were classified as speaking primarily Spanish. Three summer programs were conducted for 191 children, 160 of whom were classified as having Spanish for their primary language. Children were recruited through visits to the camps and assistance from migrant families and other migrant agencies. Inservice training and staff development activities were conducted during both terms. Children received a physical examination and dental screening, with additional medical referrals made when needed. Parents were involved through attendance at orientation meetings, in planning project activities, classroom visitations, and acting as aides. Program information was disseminated via home and camp parental visits, council meetings, and press radio releases. Among cooperating agencies were the Migrant Action Program, county health departments, Iowa State Employment Service, Iowa Department of Social Services, community action agencies, and Child Nutrition Programs. Included in the report are records of participants by age level in the program instructional activities and narrative excerpts from evaluative reports of the summer program in Muscatine and the regular school programs in Columbus and West Liberty.
