Migrant Education Handbook, 1975 [State of Oklahoma].
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
The national goal of migrant education is "to establish programs and projects which are designed to meet the special educational needs of migratory children of migratory agricultural workers or migratory fishermen and to coordinate these programs and projects with similar programs in other states". In Oklahoma, the major objectives for migrant programs are to: (1) identify every child who can be legally described as a "currently migratory child" or "formerly migratory child", involve him in a migrant program, and enter the proper information in the National Migrant Student Record Transfer System; (2) establish migrant programs where there are pockets of concentration of eligible children; and (3) improve migrant programs through continual updating of services, adding inservice and preservice training of migrant program staff, conducting student needs assessments, providing supportive services, evaluating programs, and involving others in planning for migrant program changes. Designed to assist local educational agency administrators in determining the feasibility of migrant education programs in their districts, this handbook contains information related to the planning, implementing, and evaluating of migrant education programs. Among the topics are: Parent Advisory Committees, staff development, community contact, resources, needs assessment, program priorities and objectives, and program needs. (NQ)
