The aim of the Texas Child Migrant Program is for each school district to develop a migrant program designed to meet the particular educational needs of the children of that school system. Each district is encouraged to implement new ideas, activities, and strategies which show promise of improving the migrant child's education. The program's basic goal is the development of a comprehensive and total educational program which will help the migrant child realize his highest potential and prepare him to take his place in the educational mainstream. Published as an information source for participating school districts and for others interested in the migrant child's education, this bulletin describes the program in terms of its objectives and activities. Major topics are the 7-month program, the enrichment program, staff and program development, and the Texas Plan. The Texas Plan includes the Child Migrant School Program, the Early Childhood Program for 4-year olds, a demonstration school, summer institutes for migrant school personnel, Interstate Cooperation Project, film for dissemination purposes, and the Migrant Media Center. A list of the 1974-75 Texas Migrant Project Schools is included. (NQ)
