PURPOSE & SERVICE
The purpose of the Migrant Education Program is to:
Ensure that migrant students have the opportunity to meet the same challenging state content and performance standards that all students are expected the meet.
Support high-quality and comprehensive educational programs for migratory students to help reduce the educational disruptions and other problems that result from repeated moves.
Ensure that migrant students are provided with appropriate educational services (including supportive services) that address their special needs in a coordinated and efficient manner.
Design programs to help migrant students overcome educational disruption, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, various health-related problems, and other factors that inhibit the ability of children to do well in school. The program should help prepare students to make a successful transition to post-secondary education or employment.
