Proyectos de Educacion Migrante (Migrant Education Projects).
Gonzalez, Ramon; Garcia, Jose D.
Written in Spanish and English for project personnel, parents, and others interested in migrant education, the booklet summarizes general concepts and requirements behind Title I-Migrant activities in Oregon, which has been allocated $4,439,341 in Title I-Migrant funds for fiscal year 1980. Following brief definitions of important terms, information is organized in two main sections: project planning and project implementation. Included in the planning section is brief information regarding: how a school district qualifies for Title I-Migrant funds; project priorities to be considered; eligibility and participation of migrant children; requirements for comparable access to state and local services; required parental involvement; required provision of supplemental rather than duplicate programs and services; rights of the state of Oregon regarding property ownership, continued funding, and grants to non-profit groups; required project approvals; and support and day care services which may be provided when necessary. The implementation section includes brief information about: project staffing (certification, language ability, minority representation, affirmative action compliance); the Migrant Student Record Transfer System; duties of project directors; encouragement of home-school consultants and parental involvement in the classroom; bilingual education; purchase of necessary equipment; and provisions for inservice training.
