Training Migrant Paraprofessionals in Bilingual Mini Head Start. Interim Evaluation 1976-77 Program Year. Evaluation of Progress No. 10 in a Series.
The project operates year-round sites at Connell and at Moses Lake, Washington. A mobile site which operates in La Grulla, Texas during the home base period, sends teachers out to follow migrant families as they move north for seasonal farm work, operating the educational program in temporary sites along the northern work route. The project consists of five components: instruction, training, parent/community involvement, materials development, and management. The evaluation plan for the 1976-77 program year calls for an abbreviated mid-year progress report. This mid-year report presents the results of the Cooperative Preschool Inventory; the Spelling, Math, and Reading subtests of the Wide Range Achievement Test; the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test; and the BMHS Test of Cultural Concepts which were administered to the project children. A narrative evaluation summarizes progress in the other project components. The report indicates that at mid-year: the children are making "outstanding" educational gains; in-service training is in progress at all sites and indications are that goals will be met; all goals in the parent/community involvement and management components are being met; all materials development goals are on target, and a considerable effort beyond that called for in the program goals for this year is being made.
