Night School for Secondary Migrant Students.
Washington Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Olympia. Migrant Education Program.
Since there was little educational opportunity for those interstate secondary migrant students from Texas and California who worked in the fields throughout the day, the North Franklin School District Night School was begun in 1971. During that time, one teacher was hired full time through the Title I Migrant Program. For the next 2 years, the teacher tutored at the labor camp with the help of a teacher's aide. Due to the increase in student enrollment, more teachers were added to the staff in 1973. The project was also moved from the camp to Mesa Elementary School. At present, there are over 50 migrant students, 6 teachers, and 1 teacher's aide involved in the program. Project goals are to: (1) recruit secondary migrant students who have been attending high school in Texas, California, and/or other states; (2) enroll these students in the Mesa Night School; (3) obtain the students' previous high school schedules and develop corresponding schedules to continue their education; and (4) transfer the students' completed credits back to their original high schools on official North Franklin School District High School transcripts.
