Utah Migrant Education Annual Summer Evaluation Report.
Utah State Office of Education, Salt Lake City.
In Utah, Migrant Education is a summer-only program offered at 10 sites for children from preschool through high school. Federal funds for programming are allocated to school districts according to enrollment statistics, number of staff, review of program offerings, and fiscal status. The program identifies eligible migrant children and enrolls them in the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS), which facilitates the transfer of migrant student education and health records. The largest percentages of migrant students served in Utah originated from Texas, Arizona, California, and Mexico. For the past 3 years the program has placed emphasis on meeting the needs of secondary students to assist them in completing their educational program. On-site evaluations were completed each year. This report describes the 10 program sites in terms of enrollment, staff involvement, curricular activities, areas of strengths and weaknesses, and program goals. The appendices contain tables and graphics displaying data about student enrollment, gender, district, instructional service, grade, age, ethnicity, migrant status, and support services. Also included are pretest and posttest achievement scores for reading and mathematics at each grade level of each program site. Achievement gains were made in each grade level compared to the national average score. (LP)
