The Washington State Migrant Education Program, 1974-75.
Washington Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Olympia. Migrant Education Program.
The Washington State Migrant Education Program legally defines migratory children as interstate, intrastate, or formerly migratory. Program goals are intended to serve the legislative mandate that requires establishment of "...programs and projects to meet the special education needs of migratory children of migratory agricultural workers and to coordinate these programs and projects with similar programs in other states". Although local school districts are responsible for the education of migrant children, the Superintendent of Public Instruction administers the program. One of the most basic components of the program is the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS) which is designed to shorten the distance and abate the handicap of migration. During 1974-75, the Migrant Education Identification and Recruitment Program was implemented to: (1) acquaint migrant parents and the community at large about migrant education; (2) identify and enroll migrant students; and (3) place migrant students on the MSRTS. The recruitment team works closely with both the school and the migrant family--cooperating with local educational agencies and providing medical, legal, and social service information to the family in need. This bulletin provides an overview of the migrant education program during 1974-75 and introduces the staff members who service it. (NQ)
