The primary goal of the migrant education program is to ensure that all migrant students reach challenging academic standards and graduate with a high school diploma that prepares them for responsible citizenship further learning, and productive employment
The Title I Migrant Education program is a compensatory education program designed to address the unique needs of migratory children in preschool through grade twelve. The program provides supplemental instruction in basic skills to compensate for academic deficiencies inherent in a highly mobile population. Additionally, the program provides support services such as health, nutrition, and other social services necessary to enable eligible migratory children to participate effectively in instructional programs. The Migrant Education program ensures that all migratory children will have the opportunity to meet the same challenging state content standards and challenging state student performance standards that all children are expected to meet.
A migratory child is a child under the age of 22 without a high school diploma, who moved, either on his/her own or with a parent, guardian or spouse across district/state lines in the last 36 months for the purpose of obtaining/seeking temporary or seasonal employment in agriculture, fishing or food processing activities.
