If you have moved in the last three years and there are people under age 22 in your household who have not graduated from high school, your family may be eligible for free educational services.
Because children of migrant agricultural workers move so frequently to accommodate their parents' search for employment, they often fall behind their non-migrant peers developmentally, socially and academically. The Migrant Education program strives to ensure that migrant students receive educational services to develop to their fullest potential.
Specific services include:
- Educational support services
- Extended school-day programs
- Summer programs
- Preschool instruction
- Parental involvement
- Post-secondary orientation programs
- Health and social service agency referrals
- Student leadership skills development
- Worksite ESL classes (for out-of-school youth)
- Life-skills lessons
