The report describes the Chapter 1 Migrant Education Program, implemented for eligible migrants in Wisconsin during the 1982-83 school year and following summer term to improve academic skills and meet special educational needs, and examines program effectiveness using data from annual end-of-project evaluation reports. Included are a summary report and overview of national and state migrant education goals; chapters on identification and recruitment, student participation, staff utilization, staff inservice, parent/teacher consultation, dissemination of information activities, instructional activities, coordination with other programs, and innovative educational projects; appendices of sample project evaluation forms and a commencement address by Noe Musquiz, member of the State Superintendent's Advisory Council on Migrant Education. The report indicates that 14 school year and 17 summer projects served 2,280 students (almost 99% of the projected Wisconsin total); mathematics, reading, and oral English were the major academic offerings; the majority of participants were pre-kindergarten through grade eight students; parents were involved through meetings, classroom and family visits, open houses, and volunteer work; almost 200 school personnel were employed; over 50 local and state organizations were utilized; and almost 50 innovative practices included administrative and student use of microcomputers, swimming instruction, home tutoring, bilingual counseling, field trips, fiestas, and fairs.
