Title I, Part C – Migrant Education Program

The general purpose of the Migrant Education Program is to ensure that migrant children benefit from the same free public education provided to other children. To achieve this purpose, the Migrant Education Program provides supports to enable migrant children to succeed academically.

Migrant Education is a federal program designed to provide supplementary education and human resources services to highly mobile children who are age three (3) through twenty one (21). Eligibility for the program is determined by the lifestyle of migrant families, i.e. moving across school districts, the county, or state boundaries for the purpose of seeking or obtaining temporary or seasonal work in agriculture or commercial fishing activities. Children must move with the parent/guardian or join the parent/guardian within 12 months of a qualifying move. Children who are determined to be eligible may remain eligible for up to 36 months without another qualifying move.
