1981 Maryland Migrant Education State Plan.
Friend, Ronn E.; Gates, Francis W.
Between October 1, 1980 and September 30, 1981, the 1981 migrant education program will serve an estimated 1,109 migrant children in 6 regular and 8 summer school projects in Maryland. Of these children, 422 will be at the elementary level, 366 at the secondary level, and the rest will be in preschool. Blacks compose the largest ethnic group (478) and Mexican Americans the second largest (448). The principal objectives of the plan include: (1) the planning, development, and implementation of instructional and curriculum programs to aid migrant children in the key areas of preschool education, reading, mathematics, oral language development, and occupational skills training; (2) implementation of the Skills Information System in key instructional areas; (3) implementation of nutrition, medical, dental, and special education supportive services; (4) promotion of parent participation in all phases of the program; (5) provision of inservice programs to increase sensitivity to migrant children and develop abilities in the use of the Skills Information System. It is expected that participating children will demonstrate improved functional reading and math skills, improved general health, and increased career awareness (at the secondary level). The plan includes an implementation schedule, brief budget information, outside organizations and consultants involved, detailed implementation plans for each aspect of the plan and a 42-item bibliography.
