Description
 
This audit report concerns the administration of the federally funded migrant education program by the Calif. Dept. of Education (Education). It concludes that, despite recent efforts to improve its oversight of the migrant program, Education has not provided adequate guidance to the regional offices that administer the programäó»s services (regions). While federal law and regulations broadly outline the allowable services migrant children can receive, they depend largely on state educational agencies to set more defined program guidelines. However, Education has not clearly defined what is necessary and reasonable for a variety of expenditure categories. Educationäó»s migrant office has experienced frequent changes in leadership and high staff turnover at the same time it has been tasked with a heavyworkload in response to federal reviews of the program. Moreover, the data collected on a statewide level about the migrant program are likely insufficient in detail to thoroughly evaluate whether the program is effective in addressing the academic needs of migrant children. These data limitations also prevent Education from effectively evaluating the services it provides through statewide contracts or the regional structure used to carry out the program. Finally, Education has also had difficulty making productive use of a state parent advisory council whose purpose is to advise and assist the program. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
