Migrant Education

The goal of the Migrant Education Program is to identify and recruit every eligible migrant student that is enrolled or residing in our school districts in accordance with federal laws and regulations, to provide each student with appropriate educational services, and to meet requirements of the State Comprehensive Needs Assessment and Statewide Delivery Plan.

In addressing the Needs Assessment for all migrant students for the Statewide Delivery Plan there are several areas of concern that have been identified and placed into federal regulation. The State Comprehensive Needs Assessment, through evaluation of performance data, found and developed eight specific needs of migrant students.

Those needs are:

  • Migrant first graders must develop sufficient skills to promote to Grade 2.
  • Migrant students who failed TAKS/STAAR must participate in summer TAKS/STAAR remediation.
  • Migrant middle school students must use learning and study skills appropriate to learning.
  • Migrant middle school students must have timely attention and appropriate interventions related to problems or concerns that are academically and non-academically related.
  • Migrant middle school students must have the necessary homework assistance and tools at home essential for academic success.
  • Migrant secondary students must earn the required core credits for on-time graduation.
  • Migrant secondary students must make up course work they lack due to late enrollment or early withdrawal.
  • Migrant students who migrate outside of Texas in summer months must be served in summer migrant programs through the efforts of interstate coordination.

The objective of the Migrant Education Program is to ensure that all eligible migrant students residing in our school district are properly identified and served through supplemental services which effectively address the academic and non-academic needs of our migrant students.
