The Migrant Education Program ensures that all migratory children who move among the states are not penalized in any manner by disparities among states in curriculum, graduation requirements, or state academic content and student academic achievement standards. The goal is to provide all migrant children with the opportunity to reach challenging academic standards.
A child qualifies for migrant services if they:
- Are under the age of 22 years of age
- Do not have a U.S. issued diploma or GED
- Have moved within the last six months across school district or state lines with a parent or on his/her own to obtain qualifying migratory work
Migratory work refers to temporary or seasonal employment in fishing work or agricultural work, including the production of initial processing of crops, livestock, dairy products and fish, as well as the cultivation and harvesting of trees. The Migrant Program offers a variety of supplemental academic and support services to meet the educational and health needs of migrant children.
