Arizona Migrant Child Education Program, 1982-1983. Annual Review and Evaluation.
Searfoss, Lyndon W.; And Others
The annual review and evaluation of the Arizona Migrant Child Education Program (1982-83) includes an overview of Arizona's migrant student population; program needs, objectives, and scope; evaluation of migrant student progress; responses to earlier recommendations; and recommendations for the coming year. During the year, the Program served 13,398 students in 41 regular school term programs and 22 summer programs in 5 counties. Students, 85%-90% of whom were Mexican American, were in three categories: interstate, intrastate, and 5-year migrants. Regular school term programs employed 353 teachers and aides and 213 support persons; summer programs employed 227 teachers and aides and 170 support persons. Cooperation was provided by other agencies and organizations. The program's five principal objectives, all achieved, were to provide a nutritionally sound diet for migrant students, identify and meet health needs of migrant students, provide staff development training for instructional and support personnel, maintain parental involvement programs at all levels, and maintain and support a record-keeping system on nutrition, health, and education services provided. The Arizona Migrant Child Education Laboratory helped with instructional materials development and staff development programs for instructional and support staff. Scores on California Achievement Test batteries in reading, langugage, and mathematics indicated substantial gains in grades 1-8 and decreases in grades 9-12. (MH)
