1980 Washington State Program Evaluation Report for Migrant Children's Education.
Plato, Kathleen C.; And Others
Washington's program for migrant education involved 13,543 student participants in regular programs and 3,075 student participants in special programs. The summer program served 1,994 children. Because of new reporting procedures, 52 school districts were able to describe the 6,025 students served in instructional programs, parent activity, staff employment and training, and project characteristics. The study of an evaluation design suitable for migrant education reporting, begun in 1978, remained on schedule and produced results which led to a field test during the year. Mount St. Helens' eruption delayed testing, which will continue in 1980-81. The Migrant Education Center continued to provide recruitment, inservice, parent involvement, and health and instructional services. Through the Secondary Credit Exchange, 590 students earned credits, and 81 men and women earned 2,011 credit hours toward their own degree program. Mobile classroom staff tutored 171 children. The Mini-Corps program provided academic assistance to over 500 children during the summer program. For the first time, data from summer school programs were comparable to the regular year's data because of reporting format revisions. In the fiscal year 1979, 1,994 students participated in school district summer programs and 1,114 students participated in Northwest Rural Opportunities Child Development Center summer programs.
