Bilingual Mini-School Tutoring Project. A State of Washington URRD (Urban, Rural, Racial, Disadvantaged) Program. Mid-Year Evaluation, 1975-76 Program Year.
Combining URRD and other funding sources, the program provides an interstate and interdistrict tutoring service, usually outside of regular school hours, to children of migrant and seasonal farm worker families. The tutoring is done by adult paraprofessionals, many of whom are parents or relatives of the children served. Parents also participate in program management through advisory groups for each site. Serving primarily Mexican American children, the program consists of two permanent sites in Connell and Moses Lake, Washington, and a "mobile component". The mobile component provides tutoring to migrant children in their home base in La Grulla (Texas) as well as during their stay in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Illinois. All curriculum materials used are programmed so that progress through them can be individualized. Child progress is also evaluated through nationally standardized tests. Nine objectives were established for the 1975-76 program year. This report summarizes progress toward achieving these objectives through October 1975. A narrative section expands on the comparison of academic achievement of children in the mobile program with mobile migrant children from a neighboring south Texas town who have no special preschool program and only uncoordinated local school services where they move. The program is operating effectively at all sites. (NQ)
