Title I Migrant Evaluation Report, 1978-1979.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Div. for Management and Planning Services.
Based on data derived from Title I grant applications, end-of-project evaluation reports, as well as information from the Migrant Student Record Transfer System, this report is an evaluation of Wisconsin's migrant education programs (18 school year and 18 summer projects) which served 2,641 students in fiscal year 1979 with an allocation of $916,875. Reported evaluation procedures required each Local Education Agency (LEA) to report their degree of effectiveness in meeting the needs specified in the Wisconsin state plan. The components evaluated include identification and recruitment of migratory students, instructional services and impact, support services, special needs, evaluation, parental involvement, interstate and intrastate cooperation, inservice activities, dissemination, and exemplary program components. This information is aggregated by the state office and supplemented by information unavailable to LEA's. Program expenditures and evaluation findings are listed for each of the 36 projects. Recommendations include that in the area of special needs the state office initiate a credit exchange program for secondary level migrant students in the summer of 1980, that bilingual education continue to be promoted, and that survival skills education be encouraged.
