El Congreso: Program Improvement Project, Evaluation Report YR 2. Region IX Migrant Education.
Ochoa, Alberto M.
The program "El Congreso" is a leadership development project that is designed to help migrant students become effective role models for their peers and gangs in their communities. The focus is not on remediation, but on enhancement of the migrant student's academic and social strengths. It is hoped that El Congreso students will show an increase in graduation rate, improve their academic achievement, increase enrollment in postsecondary education, develop a cadre of leadership models, and increase awareness of the need for bilingual teachers. This evaluation indicates that over 600 students from 16 school districts have participated through the program's second year. In that year, more than 16 activities, including student planning meetings and conferences and staff training, were implemented. Evaluation results indicated student growth in development of leadership skills and positive attitudes. Student involvement in planning and skill development has been evident. Improvement of direct services and better record keeping are among the recommendations for program improvement. Eight appendixes present the survey instruments and evaluation findings in table form.
