Colorado Migrant Education Program, 1978-79. Annual Evaluation Report Fiscal Year 1979. CDE Evaluation Series No. 80-9.
Kraetzer, Ann V.
The 1978-79 evaluation report describes projects, participants, personnel, and services involved in the state's efforts to provide comprehensive educational services to migrant children throughout the state. The program, operated by 10 school districts and 10 boards of cooperative services, highlights 3 projects on the basis of their innovative techniques and high attainment of objectives: (1) a student publication; (2) pesticide safety education programs; and (3) the Colorado identification and recruitment program. The report identifies the 2,014 regular year and 2,415 summer term students and indicates that the programs in general are resulting in gains in reading, language, and math skills for the majority of the students. A program critique recognizes the major strength of the local projects as being the quality and commitment of local staff, and the major weakness as inadequate number of staff. The recommendations include: (1) increased use of comparable outcome measures of program impact; (2) coordinated efforts to determine appropriate testing for this special population group; and (3) streamlined evaluation reporting process. The report also covers: teacher-pupil ratio, interrelationships with other programs and agencies, inservice training, dissemination, community involvement, and objectives. (JD)
