Colorado Migrant Education Program, 1971-1972. Summary and Evaluation Report.
Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver. Compensatory Education Services Unit.
In 1971-72, 7,714 students were enrolled in the Colorado Migrant Education Programs. Programs were conducted in 21 different program areas, covering 42 school districts. About 85 percent of the students were in the elementary grades. Inservice training for the staff stressed individualized instruction, improving the migrant child's self-concept, cultural awareness, and bilingual teaching methods. Teachers established learning centers and expanded flexibility of instructional materials and their use. Increased curriculum or program areas were offered (i.e., dancing, singing, food) to incorporate cultural awareness. Standard tests were used extensively for student diagnosis and placement. Where criterion-referenced assessments were made, the programs reported strong results. Noncognitive student behaviors showed strength or improvement, based on subjective assessment, in the areas of independent learning, cooperation, attendance, accuracy in self-evaluation, oral expression, self-concept, and interest in school. Extensive health screening and services were provided. This evaluation report covers: student enrollment and attendance, grade placement, staff, community and parent involvement, exemplary projects, dissemination, support services, mobile units, and the Migrant Student Record Transfer System.
