Handbook of Effective Migrant Education Practices. Final Report. Volume II: Case Studies.
Rudes, Blair A.; And Others
This report, the second of two volumes, presents case studies of 16 successful migrant education programs demonstrating "effective" educational practices that could be replicated elsewhere. On the basis of student outcome data, the projects were selected from 153 programs nominated by state directors of migrant education. The 16 projects are located in the: Dysart (Arizona) Unified School District No. 89; Tulare-Kings Counties (California); Pajaro Valley Unified School District, Watsonville (California); Collier County (Florida) Public Schools; Minidoka County School District No. 331, Rupert (Idaho); Fremont County Independent School District No. 215, St. Anthony (Idaho); Princeville (Illinois) Unified School District No. 326; Dodge City (Kansas) Unified School District No. 443; Dorchester County (Maryland Board of Education); Owatonna (Minnesota) Independent School District No. 761; Hancock-Harrison Cooperative (Mississippi); Glendive (Montana) Elementary School District No. 1; Hatch Valley (New Mexico) Municipal Schools; State University of New York (SUNY) College at New Paltz (New York); Snyder (Oklahoma) Public Schools; and McAllen (Texas) Independent School District. Case studies were based on observation of project services; review of project records; and interviews with project staff, students, and parents. Each case study: (1) reviews community and school contexts of the program and the program's historical development; (2) describes services, fundings, administration, facilities, and evidence of program effectiveness; and (3) discusses the potential transfer of the program's effective educational practices to other sites. This report contains 12 references and 33 data tables. (SV)
