Interstate Migrant Secondary Services Program, 1984-1985. Performance Report.
State Univ. of New York, Oneonta. Coll. at Oneonta.
For the 1984-85 funding cycle the Interstate Migrant Secondary Services Program established and successfully met 10 objectives related to 3 major goals: (1) assist local and state education agencies (LEA's and SEA's) to improve migrant students' access to junior and senior high school services in the areas of instructional opportunities, credit accumulation, program continuity, counseling, and support services; (2) serve as advocates for migrant junior and senior high school students; and (3) enhance the national communication network among LEA's and SEA's in areas affecting education for migrant secondary students. Outstanding features of the year's work included improvements to the Migrant Student Record Transfer System reporting form for secondary students, reductions in program costs, and curriculum development projects that made migrant secondary summer school programs more responsive to students' academic needs, and provided technical support to four states using the Portable Assisted Study Sequence--an alternative credit completion program. Other activites were: the publication of a newsletter distributed to over 1,600 educators in 50 states; technical assistance and training for SEA and LEA personnel in 19 states; on-site contacts with 53 SEA/LEA's; and presentation of 20 training sessions and workshops.
