MIGRANT EDUCATION PROGRAM

Migrant Recruiter / New Generation System Data Specialist

To meet the special education needs of migrant children, Congress created the Migrant Education Program in 1966. The U.S. Department of Education allocates funds by formula to the states based upon each state’s per pupil expenditure for education and counts of identified eligible migratory children, age 3 through 21, residing within the state.

These funds help ensure that migratory children who move among the states are not penalized in any manner by disparities among states in curriculum, graduation requirements, or state academic content and student academic achievement standards. Funds also ensure that migratory children not only are provided with appropriate education services (including supportive services) that address their special needs but also that such 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.
