Migrant Program


The purpose of the Migrant Education Program is to:

  • support high-quality and comprehensive educational programs for migratory children to help reduce the educational disruptions and other problems that results from repeated moves;
  • ensure that migratory children who move among the States are not penalized in any manner by disparities among the States in curriculum, graduations requirements, standards;]
  • ensure that migratory children are provided with appropriate educational services (including supportive services) that address their special needs in a coordinated and efficient manner;
  • ensure that migratory children receive full and appropriate opportunities to meet the same challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards that all children are expected to meet;
  • design programs to help migratory children overcome educational disruption, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, various health-related problems, and other factors that inhibit the ability of such children to do well in school, and to prepare such children to make a successful transition to post-secondary education and employment; and
  • ensure that migratory children benefit from State and local systemic reforms
