Migrant Education Program
The Migrant Education Program is a federal program under Title I, Part C. The goal of the Migrant Education Program is to ensure that all migrant students reach challenging academic standards and graduate with a high school diploma (or complete a GED) that prepares them for responsible citizenship, further learning, and productive employment (U.S. Department of Education, 2006).
In order to meet the eligibility requirements for the Migrant Education Program, families must meet the following criteria: 1) Moved within the last three years (36 months), to seek work in, or related to Agriculture, Fishing or Forestry industries, and employment was either seasonal or temporary. 2) Moved across school districts boundaries. 3) Student moved with or to join a parent, guardian, or another person contributing to the support of the family. The child must have made the move in order to qualify, but they do not need to have done the work themselves.
