Title I Migrant Evaluation Report, 1977-1978.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Div. for Management and Planning Services.
Based on data derived from Title I grant applications, end-of-project evaluation reports, as well as information from the Migrant Student Record Transfer System, this report is an evaluation of Wisconsin's migrant education programs which served nearly 2,700 students in fiscal year 1978 with an allocation of $821,465 for 20 school year and 15 summer projects. The primary purpose of Wisconsin's migrant programs is to improve and expand the academic skills of migratory children (primarily in preschool through the sixth grade) by focusing on the development of reading, speaking, writing, as well as mathematical skills. The report indicates a continuing effort to expand the range of services available to migratory children, coordinated with the National School Lunch program, the Texas Migrant Council, and the Migrant Health Service. Student recruitment processes, program facilities, and food services are rated as very satisfactory; however, parent involvement and staff training are rated as unsatisfactory by project administrators. This report includes information on student eligibility, interstate/intrastate/formerly migratory definitions, numbers and ages of students served, attendance, staffing, inservice training, parental involvement, funding/expenditures, and evaluation findings for each of the 35 projects.
