Claus, Richard N.; Quimper, Barry E.
The State Bilingual Education program, the Local Bilingual program, and the Migrant Education program are designed to meet the needs of bilingual and migrant students in the School District of the City of Saginaw, Michigan. Instruction consisted primarily of one hour of supplemental reading and mathematics. Students in grades 7-12 also received counseling and support services. The vast majority of the students were Hispanic, with a small number of Laotians completing the program population. In view of the fact that the program populations overlapped a great deal, the staff serving the students were the same, and all materials and activities were shared by all of the programs. A process evaluation, involving monitoring the program throughout the year, was conducted to determine if the program is being implemented as planned. Another goal of the evaluation was to identify the strengths and weaknesses that influenced the programs' outcomes. A set of questionnaires was sent to all participating staff and building principals concerning the following: (1) programming and instructional management; (2) communication; (3) pupil selection: and (4) miscellaneous. The program evaluator reviewed the responses and summarized them into a list of program strengths and weaknesses, and made recommendations for improvement. Information on the identification and eligibility procedures for program participants, copies of the survey questionnaires, and the results of the survey are included in three appendices. (FMW)
