Program objectives were to: identify migrant children in the State; provide, through the national data bank, a complete educational and health record for each child; raise or maintain the students' educational level; screen migrant children for health problems and arrange for treatment as needed; increase parental involvement and understanding of their child's educational experience; and expand the number of schools using the career development program. During the 1973 fiscal year, 2,567 migrant students were enrolled in the program. An evaluation team evaluated the program from July 1972 through June 1973 and the 1973 summer program. Data were obtained from the staff, records, reports, test results, and on-site interviews with administrators, tutors, and students. Using the Wide Range Achievement Test, pre- and posttests were given to evaluate results in reading, spelling, and arithmetic. Student attitudes were assessed at the beginning and end of the year using a scale of Student Attitudes. Findings showed the program was meeting its objectives. This report includes information on the: children served, exemplary programs, staff utilization, inservice training, special and supportive services, resource center library, program effectiveness and integration, relationship with the regular Title I program and with other programs, community involvement, nonpublic school participation, dissemination, and summer school program.
