Migrant Education Program Overview

  • Title I federal funds are given to schools that have a high poverty rate among the families in attendance. These funds are used to ensure that all children have an equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at the minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.

    The Migrant Education Program is a Title I Supplemental program designed to meet the unique needs of students whose seasonal relocations may disrupt their educational opportunities. A migrant-eligible child is one who has traveled with his/her family within in the past three years to conduct subsistence activities.
