Annual Report of the Texas Child Migrant Program, ESEA Title 1, 1974-75.
Nutt, Andrew T.; And Others
During 1974-75, 181 school districts in Texas operated programs aimed at eliminating some of the educational deprivation of 61,799 migrant children. The majority of these districts concentrated their greatest efforts in the basic subjects including reading, mathematics, and oral language. Programs were operated in grades K-12 and a special migrant prekindergarten for 4-year olds. Two types of programs were operated: the 7-month program and the enrichment program. The 7-month program was designed to compensate for the inability of certain migrant children to attend school the entire 10-month term. Enrichment programs were operated on such plans as: extra daily services providing supplementary teachers, or teacher aides providing additional services; an extended day program; or self-contained classrooms with only migrant pupils in a nongraded structure. In all the programs, the objectives were to provide pupils with social services, clothing, transportation, fees, guidance and counseling, psychological services, dental and medial services, and food as well as instructional activities which focused on reading, oral language development, enrichment experiences, English language arts, and mathematics. This annual report describes the instructional programs and pupil services provided during 1974-75. (NQ)
