Handbook for Auxiliary Services for Migrant Education.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
The handbook for an auxiliary services program includes procedures for activating the many school and community resources that can enhance the educational environment of migrant children. The program is based on the premise that no child who is hungry or ill-clothed, or in need of medical attention, can learn effectively. During the 1968-69 school year, as this handbook was prepared, the program was being designed and tested in the Eagle Pass and McAllen school districts (Texas). The inservice training program suggested in this handbook stresses sensitivity training as a method of developing auxiliary personnel to work with migrant children. The specific objectives of this program are to: (1) identify the economic, psychological, social, health, and other non-instructional migrant needs that may affect school performance; (2) organize school auxiliary services to meet these needs; (3) identify and utilize community resources for meeting needs not met through school programs; and (4) develop a comprehensive and coordinated school and community program that will provide auxiliary services with a minimum of duplication. Also included are 22 appendices. (FF)
