Migrant Education Program. 1983 Annual Evaluation Report. Bulletin 1618.
Robertson, James M.
In Fiscal Year 1983 Louisiana's allotment for the education of children of migratory workers ($6,111,277) was used to conduct 37 regular school term programs and 15 summer school programs. An estimated 13,800 migrant children were served during the 1982-83 school year. Of all migrant children enrolled in Louisiana schools, 52.6% received services beyond the Migrant Student Record Transfer System--44.7% received instructional services and 38.1% received health and other support services. At the state level, program staff attended and conducted inservice training meetings, published a newsletter with a circulation of over 900, conducted 4 State Parent Advisory Council meetings, participated in cooperative projects with other states, and supervised the administration of the Louisiana Migrant Criterion-Referenced Tests. The program met its three highest priority goals: increasing basic skill performance of migrant students, providing inservice training and technical assistance to migrant program personnel, and improving continuity of educational experiences and support services for migrant students. In the future Louisiana's Migrant Education Program should use the Criterion-Referenced Tests primarily as diagnostic tools, improve assistance to secondary students, and find various ways of involving parents, especially rural parents. This report includes tabular data on program activities and students served. Among the appendixes are a program evaluation questionnaire and migrant population statistics by parish, 1976-1982. (JHZ)
