Title I-M, ESEA Oregon Migrant Education Program Monitoring System.
Savard, William G.
The continuous flow monitoring system is designed to provide data on migrant education at the time it is being created to the person who most needs that information. The basic assumption underlying this system is that the operation to be monitored is continuous or cyclic with interrelated events known in advance or predictable. By identifying critical events and monitoring them, the system evaluates the overall endeavor. Most monitoring tasks are done by the area directors, regional consultants from the Migrant Education Services Center perform a few tasks, and the State Coordinator takes care of one. The system is displayed by a basic frame showing how the student and his records flow through the system and an administrative frame covering the proposal planning and implementation cycle. General and specific monitoring questions on each of the two frames help ascertain program progress. Answers to the specific questions are taken from 21 task sheets. Task sheets and their accompanying report forms describe the task, who should do it, when it should be done, its disposition, and what actions may result. The 13 tasks in the basic frame cover checks on recruiting, certificates of eligibility, and Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS) records, and services and evaluation checks. The eight administrative frame task sheets examine proposals, hiring, budget, staff, utilization, interagency cooperation, and parent involvement. (DS)
