Mission Statement

The mission of the Migrant Education Program is to impact teaching and learning in the K-12 classrooms so that migratory students achieve high academic success.

What is the Migrant Education Program?

The Migrant Education Program is a federally funded program designed to enrich and respond to the educational and health needs of migrant children. This program provides supplemental services to students of migratory workers from the ages of three through 21 and provides the structure, support, and scope of available services to migratory students to ensure their achievement of higher academic standards and graduation from high school.

Who is Eligible?

Generally, any child from preschool through twelfth grade, not over 22 years old is eligible for the Migrant Education Program. Mobility of the parents alone does not constitute a child’s eligibility. In order to qualify as a migrant child, the child must move with a parent, guardian, or immediate family member seeking seasonal employment, or the child must join the family or move on his/her own also seeking seasonal employment.
