Wisconsin Migrant Education Program. 1971 Evaluation.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
Prepared by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, this 1971 Migrant Education Program evaluation reports on the uniqueness of the migrant program in Wisconsin. The training of 5 teenagers in dramatics in the Lake Mills project, the open classroom program in Wantoma, the camping experience activity in the Oakfield project, and the student council and community involvement activity in the Watertown project are briefly described as exemplary projects or activities. Grade placement of the 1,495 children actually served in the summer and fall programs was facilitated by evaluations by the staff after observing the children for a few days in the program. The teacher-pupil ratio was extremely low owing to a severe cutback in labor in the area. Interrelationship with regular Title I programs, coordination with other programs, inservice training, non-public school participation, interstate and intrastate dissemination, community involvement, program effectiveness, special vocational areas, supportive services, and staff utilization are additional topics of discussion. New programs include the Stevens Point School District's program at Lena, the Oakfield School District's program at Lamartine, and programs operated during the 1971 program year using 1970 carry-over funds. Program application-agreement forms for breakfast, lunch, and commodity distribution comprise a portion of the appendix. (HBC)
