A report of migrant education program activities for the 1978-79 school year, this document describes identification of eligible students, recruitment, and project development, operation, and evaluation. Chapter 1 discusses progress made in meeting program goals at the state level. These goals, in order of priority, are program continuity, summer programs for interstate and intrastate migrant children, staff development activities, Migrant Student Record Transfer System, and programs for formerly migratory children. Chapter 2 provides information on numbers of children served, instructional activities, supporting services, coordination with non-school agencies, staff composition, community involvement, interstate planning activities, dissemination of program information, and a statewide testing program. Chapter 3, on program effectiveness, reports academic achievement of migrant students and exemplary features of programs throughout the state. The final chapter provides recommendations for the state and local education agencies; these include conducting local needs assessment studies and providing bilingual-bicultural programs for Spanish-speaking migrant children. Appendices contain tables showing enrollment figures, migrant status, age and grade, pupil-teacher ratios, and academic achievement. (JH)
