During 1980-81, the Migrant Education Identification and Recruitment Program identified 2,569 students, 14,121 students participated in all migrant education programs, and 2,880 students participated in special programs. Summer programs served 2,234 children. Fifty-six school districts reported that 6,199 students in grades Pre-K-12 received basic skills instruction in reading, math, and oral language development projects taught in both English and Spanish. Over 500 individuals were employed through the state migrant education programs. Twenty-three school districts received monitoring reviews. Over 150 persons attended state-sponsored workshops on end-of-year reporting requirements offered in the fall and spring. The health component offered physical examinations; vision, hearing, and dental screenings; immunizations; and follow-up services. The Migrant Education Center provided recruitment, inservice, parent involvement, media and instructional services. Through the Secondary Credit Exchange, 601 students earned 2,019 credit hours; 60 participants earned credit through the Extended Degree Program; and 35 Mini-Corps students learned professional teaching skills through program participation. Combining educational benefits for tutor and child, the Mini-Corps program provided academic assistance to over 1,000 children during the summer. There were 2,234 students participating in school district summer programs and 925 students in Northwest Rural Opportunities Child Development Center summer programs. (NQA)
