Evaluation of Progress, Bilingual Mini-Head Start, November 1973.
A 5-year experimental project, the Bilingual Mini Head Start program is an early education program for children of migrant farm workers. The program has 2 components: the mobile and the stationary components. In the stationary program, 2 year-round centers are operated in Connell and Moses Lake (Washington). These centers' purpose is to demonstrate how services may be provided with maximum effectiveness to a very unstable population group. In the mobile program, teachers are selected from adults whose families move with the crops. These teachers accompany small clusters of children from La Grulla (Texas) to various work stops providing continuing educational services. This program's purpose is to demonstrate how much benefit can be gained by providing continuity in an educational program as the children move. Based on the program objectives outlined in the May 1973 proposal under which the program is currently operating, this report presents an evaluation of the program's progress to approximately the 27th month of operation. The evaluation covers the instructional, staff development, parent involvement, materials development, relocating delivery system, and management components. (NQ)
