Smith, Billie Jean
The guide delineates the expanded Louisiana migrant health program for the 1980-81 school year and focuses on the task of motivating migrant children to take responsibility for their own health. Fourteen unnumbered sections contain: an excerpt from the April 3, 1980 Federal Register stating conditions for grants to state education agencies; a program overview; an outline of the role of the Louisiana State Department of Education Migrant Supervisor of Supportive Services; a summary of migrant health goals; a description of services provided through migrant education; a list of records kept; guidelines for migrant program personnel to coordinate efforts with school staff; and Louisiana certification requirements for school nurses. Also included are a flow chart of organizational priorities; the monitoring instrument for health and support services; names and school addresses of the 20 migrant program nurses; names, telephone numbers and map locations of the 14 migrant education recruiters; sample forms; and a 22-page explanation of the migrant student health record, containing a coded health problems list and medical computer data procedures. The document concludes with the migrant handbook of the Louisiana Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program which details all aspects of certification, delivery of services and transfer of information for migrants.
