Migrant Education 76. Report of the Fiscal 1976 Program for the Education of Children of Migrant Farmworkers in New York State.
New York State's migrant education program aims to provide each eligible child supplemental education programs that will best meet his assessed needs. In addition to improving skills in reading, mathematics and bilingual education, the comprehensive programs aim to improve health and nutrition, provide recreational activities, and bolster positive self-concepts. Linked to the work of other State agencies providing services to migrant children, the programs are designed to maximize teaching efforts to meet the migrant child's needs. During the 1975-76 fiscal year, tutorial instruction, summer schools, regular school supplemental programs, health education, and bilingual education programs were available to migrant children. A census project identified migrant children in the State's rural counties and provided biweekly updates of migrant child population statistics by county and school districts during the spring, summer, and fall. Support service was provided to local educational agencies to increase their utilization and understanding of the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS). Special emphasis was directed toward the tutorial program. Workshops were conducted to familiarize tutors with MSRTS. Interstate cooperation was fostered through the Puerto Rican Coordinator project, Florida Teacher Exchange, Florida Nutrition Aides program, Texas Child Migrant Program, and attendance at regional and national workshops.
