Minnesota Migrant Education Program 1984 Evaluation Report. Chapter I ECIA Migrant Education.
Minnesota State Dept. of Education, St. Paul.
During 1983-84, the Minnesota Migrant Education Program provided an array of individualized instructional and support services to 2,867 students aged 0-21 years. Major program emphases were designated as interstate coordination, expansion of secondary programs, and parental involvement. The program provided an intensive, short-term, full day, comprehensive academic program during the summer agricultural season, and an individualized, supplemental tutorial program during the regular school year. Summer projects included a preschool component for ages 0-5 and an elementary component for ages 5-21. Four projects offered a junior high curriculum for the older students who attended the day program. Nine projects included a secondary evening component for ages 12-21. Summer projects emphasized oral language development and individualized instruction in reading and mathematics. Secondary evening programs allowed students to earn credit or accumulate hours toward partial credit for coursework completed during the summer in order to fulfill high school graduation requirements. Focusing on the activities and achievements of the summer and regular school year projects, this report lists the national and state goals for migrant education and presents information on identification and recruitment of eligible migrant families; staff development and project personnel; student academic achievement; parental involvement; interagency, interstate, and intrastate cooperation; information dissemination activities; and special projects.
