Annual Evaluation Report for Texas Child Migrant Program, 1970-71.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Evaluation.
The 1970-71 report for the Texas Child Migrant Program evaluates: participants; pupil personnel services; age-grade discrepancy; participation in major emphasis areas; parental involvement; migrant program personnel; summer institutes; staff development; the impact of Title I Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Migrant Funds upon pupils in 20 extended day program; dropouts; graduate follow-up study of migrant children; child migrant preschool program; and the Texas Summer Child Migrant Program. The study of the ESEA program tries to determine if the efforts resulted in increased achievement as measured by standardized achievement tests. Major program objectives are to promote fluency in oral English and to raise reading comprehension levels. The study evaluation includes findings for grades 2-8 and summary analyses of standardized test scores for reading, language, and mathematics. Overall recommendations for the entire Texas program are that, during FY 72, all school districts should implement a comprehensive Parental Involvement Program; that institutions not willing to evaluate summer staff development activities should not be funded by ESEA; and that a special study be implemented to determine an adequate measure of migrant students' development.
