ESEA Title I Migrant Program. Final Technical Report. June 30, 1979.
Friedman, Myron; And Others
A comprehensive evaluation of Austin Independent School District's Migrant Program for 1978-79, this document identifies program accomplishments and areas where further action is needed and provides extensive documents supporting the decision and evaluation questions published in the project evaluation design. Academic achievement of students at several levels (pre-K-12) and delivery of health services to 90% of the migrant pre-K students are among the positive findings summarized. Supervision of migrant teachers, implementation of diagnostic-prescriptive teaching approach, and standardization of the quality of programs in grades 6-12 are areas requiring action. Appendices contain detailed information on achievement testing procedures and results, migrant attendance, type and amount of instruction received by migrant students, clothing purchases, health services, and parent advisory committees. Interviews with teachers, administrators, and migrant parents are reported; concerns were each group's knowledge of the range of services provided by the Migrant Program, satisfaction with the program, and perceived needs. Migrant teacher performance is discussed and favorably compared to performance of locally funded teachers. (JH)
