Title I Migrant Education Evaluation Report, 1981-82.
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort. Div. of Compensatory Education.
In 1981-82 there were 58 districts in Kentucky which provided programs and services for 6,364 migratory children. Of that total, currently migratory (interstate) accounted for 13%, currently migratory (intrastate) accounted for 19%, and formerly migratory accounted for 68%. Approximately 81% of the students were in grades pre-kindergarten through eight, while only approximately 19% were high school students. The majority (97%) of the migrant students were Caucasian, with less than 3% belonging to other ethnic groups. Sixty-four instructional programs were offered by 56 districts during the regular school year and 27 instructional programs were conducted by 24 districts as summer school programs. Instructional programs fell into the areas of math, reading, language arts, written and oral communications, tutorial, and kindergarten. Parent involvement increased during the 1981-82 school year for most of the migrant school districts. Standardized tests were the most widely used means of measuring student achievement. In the regular school program, there seemed to be slightly more progress made in mathematics and language arts than in reading. The migrant students in the first grade showed more progress than students in other grades. Samples of reporting forms used by local education agencies complete the document. (BRR)
