Kansas State Migrant Education Program. 1972, 1973, 1974 Evaluation Report.
Kansas State Dept. of Education, Topeka. State and Federal Programs Administration.
Educational programs for migrant children in Kansas have been gradually increasing in quality and quantity since 1972. The Kansas State Department of Education has responded to the educational needs of migrant children by (1) establishing goals and objectives for instructional and supportive services; (2) acquiring increasing amounts of Title I, Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) funds; and (3) increasing the number of programs in the State. In 1972, $518,951 was allocated for migrant programs, $594,216 in 1973, and $694,474 in 1974. The number of programs was increased from 11 in 1972 to 13 in 1974. These programs reported increases in the cognitive and affective development of children and an increase in the number of children served. Increases were also reported in the number of bilingual teachers used and the quality of training provided all personnel. This report summarizes data obtained from the final reports submitted by the agencies operating Title I, ESEA migrant education programs in 1972, 1973, and 1974. Some topics covered are: number of participants by age, grade, and length of time in the program; grade placement; innovative projects used; objective measurement; teacher-developed tests; interrelationship with regular Title I programs and other programs; staff utilization and inservice training; community involvement; and instruction.
