Training Migrant Paraprofessionals in the Bilingual Mini Head Start, February 1973.
McConnell, Beverly
The Bilingual Mini Head Start program is an early education program for children of migrant farm workers. The program has three permanent sites--two year-round sites in Washington which serve both mobile migrants and seasonal farm workers' children, and a home base site in Grulla, Texas which serves only mobile migrant children. Teachers from Grulla site move into the migrant stream when the families move north. Each teacher continues to serve a small cluster of migrant children in a series of temporary field locations in Washington, Idaho, and Illinois. Thus, continuity of educational services is offered throughout the migration of this mobile population from Grulla. The program consists of six components: instruction, staff training, parent and community involvement, management, materials development, and relocating delivery system. This report presents the evaluation of the program's progress for the project year 1972-73. Findings are presented by objective in each component. Overall, the objectives are being met. (NQ)
