Dunn, Jerry L.
The Colorado Migrant Education Program seeks to identify and meet the specific educational needs of all migrant children in the State. In providing comprehensive services to migrant students, Colorado has organized and operated its migrant educational program around the following basic program aspects: (1) conducting a year-round, statewide migrant student identification and recruitment effort; (2) providing a full, intensive and comprehensive summer educational program for all migrant students; (3) helping the local educational agencies plan and operate their programs with respect to migrant students and supplement local programs to better serve the migrant's needs; and (4) coordinating and cooperating with other state and local agencies in providing the needed educational and related services. In 1973-74, the program served 4,297 migrant students. A major program goal was to provide migrant students with specialized and expanded opportunities to improve their communication skills. Bilingual and bicultural, oral language development, reading and math were stressed in most programs. Overall, the program was successful. This evaluation report covers: student enrollment and attendance, program organization, staff, support services, exemplary programs, student achievement and behaviors, and staff and community attitudes.
