The final evaluation of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I Migrant Program in the Austin, Texas Independent School District is reported. The program consisted of instructional, student recruitment, parental involvement, health services, and clothing components. The instructional component included programs for pre-kindergarten children, secondary level (sixth grade and above) reading classes and secondary oral language development classes. The purpose of the recruitment and involvement component was to identify and register migrant children and to establish local Parental Advisory Councils. Health service activities included medical and dental treatment for students referred by a pediatric nurse practitioner. Funds to purchase clothing for needy migrant children comprised the clothing component. Evaluation of the program served three purposes: (1) to define the population served and to identity its needs; (2) to determine how the program was being implemented; and (3) to determine if the program met its objectives. The evaluation centered on needs assessment data, process data, outcome data, and miscellaneous data. This material is presented as answers and supportive data to a series of 44 questions including data obtained from parents, teachers, and administrators. (MH)
