Florida Migratory Child Compensatory Program. Evaluation, 75-76.
Scruggs, James A.
During FY 1976, the Florida Migratory Child Compensatory Program (FMCCP) served 43,225 migrant children. Consisting of four major educational components (early childhood, language arts, Learn and Earn, and supportive services), FMCCP was committed to providing preventative education (preschool services), and compensatory education (language arts, Learn and Earn, and supportive services). In FY 1975, emphasis was placed on early childhood and language arts, especially with children in preschool and grades 1, 2, and 3. During 1976 FMCCP found that the percentage of children "ready" to enter first grade after finishing one, two, or three years of preschool was 54%, 56%, an 66% respectively. Also children in first, second, and third grades with previous preschool experience in the FMCCP performed better depending on the years spent in preschool. In language arts, the children evaluated showed a gain of 1.7 months per 20 hours of instruction, surpassing the expected objective of 1.5 months per 20 hours. Learn and Earn was one of the greatest achievements. Once the children were enrolled in the program and placed on the job, they tended to show a high attendance rate (89%). Focusing on the four major components, this report covers the program administration and supervision, organizational structure, need for service, identification, enrollment, grade placement, parental involvement, interrelationship with the regular Title I program, staff development, and career services.
