The United I.S.D. Migrant Education Program will strive to provide appropriate services to support the educational experience of this highly mobile population. Support services will address their specific needs in a coordinated and efficient manner together with the assistance of the LEA. Efforts will be made to address the educational disruption, poverty and language barriers that migrant children face by utilizing the federally mandated seven areas of focus.
The purpose of the Migrant Education Program is to provide migratory students opportunities to achieve excellence and equity in the classroom.
The Migrant Program must be planned and designed with the involvement of parents and teachers of the participating children. The ultimate goal is “Student Success” by recruitment of students in order to assist them by providing academic and support services that will alleviate the obstacles they face due to their migratory lifestyle.
