This comprehensive report on the Washington State program for migrant children's education was compiled by the state education department in order to comply with federal and state funding requirements. It is divided into four parts: (1) Federal Assistance Application; (2) Program Narrative; (3) Budget Information; and (4) Assurances. The program narrative includes planning information on statewide and local projects. On the state level, the discussion reviews general needs and objectives and plans for support programs, including: student instruction; special programs for secondary migrant students; migrant education summer programs; special education programs; early childhood instruction; staff development; and interstate support. Also discussed are the subjects of parent involvement, identification and recruitment, the Migrant Student Record Transfer System, the dissemination program (media), and health issues. The state program plan also covers resident children to be served, services to private school children, identification and recruitment, state parent advisory council, coordination with other programs, coordination with other states, fiscal and administrative requirements, evaluation to determine program effectiveness, evaluation to improve services, and use of funds. Local projects are discussed in terms of appropriate use of funds, project size, scope and quality, and parent and teacher consultation. The budget for migrant children's education is summarized and discussed. The Assurances section certifies the state education program's compliance with federal regulations, policies, guidelines, and requirements. It includes 12 exhibits illustrating the administration, monitoring and other financial and substantial aspects of the program. (TES)
