Training Migrant Paraprofessionals in Bilingual Mini Head Start. Mid-Year Evaluation, 1975-76 Program Year. Evaluation of Progress No. 8.
An early education program for children of migrant and seasonal farm workers, the program is designed around three problems which uniquely affect these children's education--lack of continuity, lack of professional staff, and irregularity of attendance. Serving primarily Mexican American migrant children, the program consists of two year-round sites located in Washington State and a third site called the "mobile component." The mobile program operates in La Grulla (Texas) during the winter; then the teachers, recruited from the families of the children served, move north when the children do and set up centers wherever the children move, continuing their education at each stop. The Washington sites provide year-round services for interstate, intrastate, and settled-out migrants. This evaluation report discusses the program's mid-year progress during the 1975-76 program year. The outcome and process objectives are given along with a summary of findings for the following components: instruction, staff development, parent and community involvement, materials development, and management for an interstate delivery system. Overall the objectives are being met or partially met. (NQ)
