During 1977-78 the Texas Migrant Education Program provided supplementary instructional and support services to 85,302 children of migratory parents. Title I Migrant funds of $30,330,453 were expended for regular term programs by 271 participating Texas school districts and four nonprofit organizations. Supplementary instruction was provided to migrant students in reading, oral language development, communication skills, enrichment experiences, English language arts, and mathematics. Support services included food, clothing, transportation, attendance services, fees, guidance and counseling, and dental and medical services. The four nonprofit organizations funded to operate prekindergarten programs provided a wide range of readiness activities, recreation and support services to 2,931 four-year-olds. Most of the children participating in the Texas migrant programs were in the elementary grades. The most frequently occurring instructional activity was supplementary reading, with 37,662 pupils participating. Elementary students showed a mean gain of 0.7 months per month of reading instruction; students from grades 7-12 showed a mean gain of 0.8 months per month of instruction. Parent-school-community involvement activities were also conducted in all Texas Migrant programs. The Summer Migrant Program involved 6,947 students, primarily in the elementary grades.
