Migrant Services Coordination
Seeks to ensure that migrant students and their families have their needs for educational and support services met.
Early Childhood Education
Enhances performance opportunities for three and four-year-old migrant students. It provides models for home- based education directly involving parents and school-based programs which coordinate with other services such as the “Bright Beginnings” program.
New Generation System (NGS)
Is an innovative information network serving migrant children. NGS allows complete access and update capability to all students, enrollment, and facility information.
Empowers parents to be advocates and to take advantage of all available resources for the education of their children. A local advisory committee is established for seeking input in the planning and implementation of the program.
Identification and Recruitment
Of all eligible migratory children and youth is required of each district. These are children residing in the district who migrate with their parents in search of temporary or seasonal work in fishing or agriculture.
Promotes the transition to postsecondary education through the promotion of student leadership academics, state assessment performance improvement strategies, correspondence courses, admissions, counseling, and coordination of activities that ensure all migrant students are processed for postsecondary opportunities.
Secondary Credit and Accrual
Is critical as secondary education students move from school to school. Documentation of courses recommended and taken becomes significant in their educational development. Districts are also responsible for partial and complete courses awarded by schools.
