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 to 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 postsecondary education or employment.
