Petro, Janice Rose; And Others
During 1991-92, 15 local Migrant Education projects served 2,063 migrant students in 751 Colorado schools. This report characterizes the population served, describes the services provided, and presents program evaluation data. Although the programs serve students aged 0-21, the majority of children were of elementary school age in regular-year and summer programs. Most children were from migratory families that traveled between Colorado and at least one other state. Reading, English for limited English speakers, language arts, and mathematics were the primary areas of instruction. The summer program offered expanded instructional areas and support services. Regular and summer programs coordinated with other agencies to assure a broad range of services to migrant students and their families. Migrant program personnel overwhelmingly rated the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS) and the summer migrant health program as useful. Personnel offered suggestions for improvement in such areas as secondary credit exchange, parent involvement, and student progress measurement. Based on norm-referenced and criterion-referenced test results, reading and mathematics programs were effective in improving the achievement of participants. The regular year program met 5 of 9 measured objectives, and the summer program realized 7 of 11 measured objectives. This report also contains goals for 1992-93 and recommendations for future migrant programs. Tables and figures detail data concerning enrollment, expenditures, services provided, test scores, and achievement gains. (KS)
