Programs were operated in grades K-12 (with a special preschool for 4-year-olds), serving 59,417 migrant children in 177 Texas school districts during the 1973-74 school year. Affording pupils comparable instructional hours, 16 school districts operated on a State funded extended day 7 month school year, an alternative designed to meet the special needs of migrant children. Enrichment programs included one or a combination of the following plans: extra daily services to provide supplementary instruction, utilizing a resource teacher in the classroom, a circulating supplementary teacher, or teacher aides; an extended day program, providing additional instruction after school; or self-contained classrooms (nongraded migrant pupils only). Program objectives were to provide social services, clothing, transportation, fees, guidance, counseling, psychological services, dental and medical services, and food, as well as instructional activities focusing on reading, oral language development enrichment experiences, English language arts, and mathematics. General conclusions were that the reading ability of migrant students is improving and that some students (48 percent) are showing gains in mathematics. (JC)
