On the Move: Migrant Education 1989-90.
Rose, Janice; And Others
During the 1989-90 school year 14 local migrant education projects, conducted by 5 Colorado school districts and 9 Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES), served 1,500 migrant students in 579 schools. In the summer of 1990, of 13 migrant education projects, 4 were conducted by Colorado school districts and 9 by BOCES. Summer programs were administered in 18 schools and served 2,142 students. Both regular year and summer programs served a predominance of interstate migrant students. The projects offered assistance to migrant students to help them succeed in a regular school program, attain grade level proficiency, and improve their achievement in basic skills. The progress of the students was measured with norm-referenced and criterion-referenced tests. Results indicate that, though variable across grade levels, reading and math programs had improved the achievement levels of participants. The level of improvement in these areas, however, did not meet the Colorado state program objectives. Of the four state objectives for regular year programs, only one was met: migrant staff satisfaction with educational and health records remained 100 percent. Summer programs have met two of the four objectives; i.e., the number of students' secondary credits accured more than quadrupled, and staff satisfaction with records remained 100 percent. Recommendations for the 1990-91 program were listed. This document contains numerous data tables and figures. (LP)
