Evaluation of Migrant Education, Numero Dos, Title I-M Programs in the State of Oregon. September 1972 - August 1973.
Moore, William G., Comp.; And Others
The Migrant Education Section of the Oregon State Department of Education is responsible for providing educational and ancillary services to children of migrant agricultural workers. Title I, Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), provides payment to state educational agencies for assistance in educating migrant children. Funds provided by the U.S. Office of Education are used to meet special educational needs of these children and to coordinate these services with similar programs and projects in other states. In fiscal year 1972-73, regular year area projects were funded in Oregon. They provided diversified educational, health, nutritional, and social services for migrant students from kindergarten through high school. The major emphasis of the state plan was on these projects, but provisions were made for eight summer school programs in 1973. These were designed for children aged 5-14 and were directed toward improving reading and communication skills, diversified school and field trip experiences and health and nutritional services. Although these two types of programs formed the core of state migrant education, an undergraduate program in bilingual education was also established at Eastern Oregon State College. In addition to the above programs, the report describes the Migrant Education Service Center and the evaluation plan design. The bulk of the document gives individual reports, by county, for the regular year and summer programs. (KM)
