Altus Migrant Summer Programs, Title I ESEA (Altus Independent School District 18 [Oklahoma], June 2, 1975 - July 11, 1975).
Altus Independent School District 18, OK.
The purpose of the 1975 Migrant Summer School was to: (1) expand the migrant child's vocabulary, (2) improve his academic ability, (3) develop cultural enrichment, and (4) facilitate social adjustment. Specific objectives were: (1) developing reading skills to enable students to read easily materials on different levels, (2) developing writing skills for self expression, (3) acquiring an extended oral vocabulary in English to complement the student's basic home-acquired Spanish language, (4) learning basic math, (5) developing a positive attitude toward school by offering opportunities for each child to experience success, and (6) effecting an awareness of the importance of the Mexican American's cultural heritage. Of the 59 children in grades 1-6 enrolled in the program, 25 were current migrants and 34 were 5-year migrants (children whose parents have "settled" in a community within the last 5 years). The Altus Migrant Linguistic Laboratory Summer Program was coordinated with the program. Students attended the lab on a volunteer basis. Homeroom teachers gave a brief evaluation of the students with apparent academic difficulties and parents signed a slip giving their child permission to attend the lab. Health services and type A lunches were provided. Interest was kept at a peak through field trips. Overall the program was a success. (NQ)
