Utah Migrant Education. Annual Evaluation Report, FY 1981.
Utah State Dept. of Public Instruction, Salt Lake City.
Providing continuity in education and the opportunity to study in an environment conducive to learning was the first priority of Utah's Migrant Education program during fiscal year 1981. Operating in 10 districts, 29 teachers and 27 aides (almost all bilingual) served 547 children, kindergarten through grade 12, with 86% being elementary students. Children served were 83.4% Hispanic, 9% American Indian, 7.3% Asian, and .3% Anglo. Critical components present in each project were reading, mathematics, language development, physical and recreational education, and career, cultural, and vocational awareness. Twenty percent of the migrant students were involved in direct vocational learning consisting of welding, sewing, and auto mechanics classes. All grades K-10, except grades 2, 6 and 8, were successful in obtaining a 2-month average gain in reading, math, and spelling. Nine health screening clinics examined 320 migrant students and identified those requiring follow-up physical, audio, eye, and dental services. More than 300 students were served daily breakfasts, lunches, and snacks through federal food programs. Parents were involved in the 1981 program through state or local parent advisory council participation, classroom visits, field trip supervision, teacher conferences, school social function attendance, aide or volunteer service, or recruiting efforts.
