Objectives of the Missouri migrant program were to: raise the educational level of migrant children; acquire a complete set of educational and health records for each child; screen and refer those children needing health services to the appropriate personnel; instill within parents and children the desire and need for a secondary education; and provide specialists to assist the parents, teachers, and children as the need arises. During fiscal year 1971, 3,408 students, ranging from 5 to 18 years, participated in the program. Since the majority of these attended schools located in Southeast Missouri. only 1,257 were included in the program's evaluation. Evaluation data were obtained at the beginning, during, and at the end of the 1970-71 academic year or during the summer school term through visits and interviews conducted in various school districts and from records, reports, and test results which were used to substantiate the on-the-spot visits. This report includes information on the: children participating; innovative projects; pressing educational needs; objective and subjective measurements; general program effectiveness; personnel; interrelationship with the regular Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I program and with other programs; community involvement; nonpublic school participation; and major problem areas.
