Migrant Education

What is the Migrant Education Program?
The Migrant Education Program grew out of the Title I Program of Public Law 89-10 in 1965 to help all disadvantaged children. The needs of migrant children are many times different from those of other children, in that they require special help and services. For this reason, the Migrant Education Program was established separately by an amendment to Title I in 1966. These services help more than 850,000 eligible migrant children overcome the disadvantages they face, including disruption to their education.

Why Give Special Assistance to Migrant Children?
Most school programs, including those supported by Title I, are set up on a nine-month academic calendar. However, when migrant children move with their families, their education as well as their lives is disrupted, often many times a year. These children can be helped to enjoy school and to overcome their difficulties. Through the Migrant Education Program, they can achieve an education and develop their skills and options for the future.

Who Qualifies For Migrant Education Program Services?
A child between the ages of 3 and 22 who is, or whose parent, or guardian is a migratory agricultural worker, including a migratory dairy worker or a migratory fisherman.
They have moved in the last 36 months across school district lines or from one state to another to obtain temporary or seasonal work in agricultural, fishing or logging work as their principal means of livelihood.
