Florida Migratory Child Compensatory Program. State Annual Evaluation Report, Fiscal Year 1975.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Migratory Child Div.
During fiscal year 1975, the Florida Migratory Child Compensatory Program (FMCCP) served 19,455 migrant children through its Early Childhood Learning Program, Language Arts Tutorial Program, and Learn and Earn Program. The Early Childhood Learning Program provided 6,361 three, four, and five year olds with physical and dental examinations, nutrition services, and language, social, personal and physical development services. The Language Arts Tutorial Program provided 11,306 students the opportunity to progress at their own rate and to experience success in reading. Designed to help migrant students, ages 14-17, improve their self-concept by achieving success in a short-term occupational course, the Learn and Earn Program provided training experiences for 1,788 students. These programs were evaluated separately within the districts. Student gains were measured using various tests and by the analysis of successful program completion. Findings indicated that every program showed some degree of success. Direct and indirect supportive services were also provided. This report discusses FMCCP's progress during 1975. Also discussed are FMCCP's exemplary projects, interrelationship with the regular Title I program, coordination with other programs, inservice training, non-public school participation, community involvement, staff utilization, dissemination, teacher-pupil ratio, and program integration.
