Evaluation of the Education of Migratory Children; Request for Proposal
[30 Pa.B. 236]
The Department of Education, Bureau of Community and Student Services, Division of Migrant Education, will accept proposals until 4 p.m., February 29, 2000 for the Evaluation of the Education of Migratory Children. This evaluation includes agency-based initiatives performed in consultation and approval with the issuing office. Proposals not received by the time specified will not be considered for funding. The Pennsylvania Migrant Education Program is designed to award funds for the purpose of providing educational and support services for assisting migratory children in achieving success in school. A competitive process has been established to receive and select proposals to fund such programs across the Commonwealth. Local educational agencies and institutions of higher education are eligible to apply for Pennsylvania Migrant Education funds.
The Division funds nine regional project areas in Pennsylvania through five contractors. The intent of this request for proposal is to evaluate the services of these nine contractors and one service unit to determine program effectiveness.
Funds under the Pennsylvania Migrant Education Program may only be used to support programs for migratory children. Projects must identify and serve all eligible migrant children to help reduce the educational disruptions and other problems that result from repeated moves and ensure migratory children are provided with appropriate educational services (including support services) that address their needs in a coordinated and efficient manner.
Interested parties are invited to submit proposals to Dr. Manuel Recio, Chief, Division of Migrant Education, Pennsylvania Department of Education, Fifth Floor, 333 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA 17126-0333. The request for proposals can be obtained by calling (717) 783-6467, text telephone TTY: (717) 783-8445.
