Chapter 1 ECIA Migrant Education Evaluation Report. Fiscal Year 1983.
Reeves, Carolyn M.; LeCertua, Patrick J.
At a cost of $3,035,141.00, Idaho's fiscal year 1983 migrant education programs served 7,441 students during the regular school year (33 programs) and 2,853 students during the summer session (23 programs). Twenty-five projects employed resource teachers at the preschool and/or elementary level during the regular year. Instruction was provided in reading, math, communications skills, English as a Second Language, self-concept and social growth, career education and vocational counseling, and health. A special emphasis was made to identify and serve potential dropout students. Summer programs permitted students to earn credits needed to graduate from high school. Evening programs were also offered for migrant teenagers who worked in the fields during the day. Idaho utilized the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS) network for identification, recruitment, and management; a state handbook for MSRTS procedures was begun. Enrollment remained nearly even with 1982 enrollment despite a predicted increase. Each local project had access to supportive assistance through a Migrant Education Resource Center which maintained a lending library of curricular materials. Appendices include statistical summary lists and examples of the secondary credit data entry form, MSRTS certificate of eligibility, health data entry form, student educational and health records, and early childhood development skills logsheet.
