State of Illinois Report on Title I, Public Law 89-750, Migrant. 1974 Annual Report.
Kalman, Marjorie, Comp.
Of the 31 migrant projects funded in fiscal year 1974 (FY 74), 27 (11 regular term and 16 summer term) were classroom programs. There were 365 children enrolled during the regular term and 1,601 during the summer. Children were recruited through: visits by school personnel to the migrant camps, information supplied by other project participants, and the Migrant Student Record Transfer System. Teacher and parent referrals and teacher-made and standardized tests were the most frequently used to determine the children's needs. Subjects taught most often were reading and oral language development during the regular term and reading and mathematics during the summer. Individualized and small group instruction, tutorial assistance, drill, and field trips were used to implement the various activities. Teacher-made tests and observation were most frequently used to assess the students' performance. During the year, medical and dental services were expanded and parental involvement was increased. This report provides: (1) a summary of data and recommendations; (2) descriptions of the migrant summer programs at Princeville, Hoopeston, and Part Forest; (3) an interview with the project director regarding his program assessment and future plans; and (4) a description of program implementation, based on information submitted by the local projects on the FY 74 Self Assessment Questionnaire.
