Dailey, Carolyn J.
The evaluation report of the 1977-78 Colorado Migrant Education Program (federally funded through ESEA Title I) describes the supplementary programs, summer programs, and support services employed to provide educational services to migrant children throughout the state. It is reported that the program, operated by school districts and boards of cooperative services, emphasized basic skills in reading, language arts, and math, in addition to a full range of instruction. Fifteen regular year programs which were held in 40 school districts for 1,429 migrant students are identified, as well as the 16 summer programs in 36 districts for 2,336 students. The document describes the instructional, administrative and support staff of 122 full- or part-time persons for the regular year programs and 362 full- or part-time personnel for the summer programs. The evaluation reports significant gains in reading and math skills of students participating in the program, as judged by teachers, pre/post standardized tests, and pre/post objective referenced tests. It is recommended that the state staff review local operations and support services. The report covers: state program administration, local program description, program results, support services, program costs, conclusions, and recommendations. (JD)
