Colorado Migrant Education Program, 1972-1973. Summary and Evaluation Report.
Hennes, James D.
During 1972-73, the Colorado Migrant Education Program served 5,455 migrant students. Enrollment dropped for the second straight year as weather, housing, and crop changes affected the migrant family's movement. Programs were conducted in 20 project areas, covering 39 school districts. Program offerings were expanded to include such components as parental involvement, social and natural science, vocational and high school offerings, nutrition and career education, and bilingual-bicultural activities. An integral part of the program were the Migrant Health Programs, a support system of mobile units, and the Migrant Student Record Transfer System. A variety of assessment procedures were used. All projects using criterion-referenced instruction reported their students made some gains. Eight projects reported normative results from standardized tests on small samples. Noncognitive student behaviors reported by each project showed strengths in school interest and self-concept and weaknesses in educational aspirations. All student behavior ratings showed significant improvement as compared to the previous year. More projects reported improved community attitudes. This evaluation report covers: student enrollment, attendance, and language; staff and administration; exemplary projects; new programs; support services; and student achievement, behaviors, and attitudes.
