Evaluation of Progress, Bilingual Mini-Head Start. Final Evaluation, 1973-74 Program Year.
A 5-year experimental program, the Bilingual Mini Head Start program is an early education program for children of migrant farm workers. Consisting of a mobile and a stationary component, the program includes: (1) an interstate mobile delivery system, (2) an individualized curriculum which can be taught by migrant adults, and (3) intensive training of paraprofessional staff. The mobile component, which operates in La Grulla (Texas) during the winter months, has trained adults in migrant families to serve as teachers. As the families move north, these adults continue to teach children in small groups as they move to various work stops in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Illinois. The stationary component consists of 2 year-round centers in Washington. These centers serve migrant children on an in and out basis and the children of seasonal farm workers who are now "settled out" in Washington. This report presents an evaluation of progress to the end of the third fiscal year of operation. The evaluation reports findings on the program objectives outlined in the 1973-74 project proposal pertaining to the instructional, staff development, parental involvement, materials development, relocating delivery system, and management components.
