Annual Evaluation Report for Migrant Programs Fiscal Year 1975 (School Year 1974-1975) [Iowa].
Lange, Drexel D., Comp.: And Others
During fiscal year 1975, 4 school attendance centers were operated: (1) Migrant Action Program, Mason City; (2) Reinbeck Community, Reinbeck; (3) Muscatine Community, Muscatine; and (4) Muscatine-Scott County, serving Muscatine and West Liberty schools. Although each local educational agency (LEA) approached the migrant child's educational problems differently, the individualized instruction concept was central in all programs. There were 229 migrant children served during the year. Standardized testing, Migrant Student Record Transfer System printouts, and teacher judgement determined the grade level instructional activities. Normal age-grade criteria was used for grade classification during the regular school term; during the summer, instructional grouping was established by attainment level with the actual age range limited to a 3-year differentiation. Although summer programs were integrated with the regular Title I summer programs in the morning, afternoon sessions were for migrant children only and included such enrichment activities as art, swimming, field trips, and club activities. Coordination with other program concerned with the migrant's problems was maintained. Each LEA provided inservice training for their entire migrant program staff. Each LEA reported that the migrant educational program was successful. This report includes the Muscatine Community School evaluation report to show in more detail the LEA perspective in migrant education. (NQ)
