North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Curriculum and Instruction.
This report evaluates program activities of Chapter 1 and migrant education in North Carolina during 1989-90. Data used in compiling the migrant education report were obtained from local project directors, the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS), the Annual Testing Program, LEA monitoring reports, and from instruments and forms devised by agency staff. A total of 1,338 schools (68.6%) and 10 institutions for delinquent children provided Chapter 1 services to 114,687 students. The program was evaluated in terms of administration, participants served, instruction delivered, staff employed, funds expended, and student achievement in reading and mathematics. The findings of the evaluation indicate that Chapter 1 programs were widely available and were successful in meeting the academic needs of educationally deprived children. Recommendations include: (1) to continue to focus on areas designated as program priorities; (2) to strengthen program evaluation efforts; (3) to secure additional funding; and (4) to promote parental involvement. The evaluation addressed issues of identification and enrollment of migratory children, programming, interstate coordination, staff development, academic achievement, fiscal management, and dissemination efforts. The report concludes that the migrant education program is adequately meeting legislative requirements, and national and state program objectives. Recommendations were made for programmatic and administrative improvement. This report contains numerous tables representing demographic and student achievement information. (LP)
