Migrant Education Programs Under ESEA Title I Migrant Amendment. (Programas de Educacion Migrante bajo el Titulo I de ESEA.)
Minkler, Elton D.
Migrant Education Programs are designed for those students who, because of the migratory nature of their parents' employment, are required to move from one school district to another during the school year. In many instances these students, because of sporadic attendance and discontinuity of their educational experiences, have found it difficult, if not impossible, to function in the regular school programs. Purpose of the Migrant Education Programs is to provide educational and support services necessary to accommodate the unique and specific needs of these students. In planning and administering these programs, provisions are made to create an environment compatible with and attendant to the social, cultural, educational, health, and nutritional needs of these students. Program objective is to identify the individual student's strengths and weaknesses and to prepare a program that will best serve his needs. Prepared for parents, project personnel, and other interested persons, this booklet summarizes the general concepts and requirements of the Migrant Education Programs funded under Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I. Topics covered are: program funding, priorities, staffing, and evaluation; student eligibility; supplemental program funding; support services; parent involvement; the Migrant Student Record Transfer System; bilingual education; and in-service training.
