Explanation: The percentage of HEP students who received the GED decreased in FY 2000 and 2001 because the GED requirements changed, grantees had problems with test centers in their States, in particular with GED testing in Spanish, and five of the projects were new projects and had difficulty with late start-up dates. Data for 2002 are not yet available.  
Additional Source Information: HEP/Camp grantee performance reports.

Frequency: Annually.
Collection Period: 2002
Data Available: January 2003

Progress: The data for FY 2001-2002 will be available when grantees submit their Grant Performance Report, ED Form 524-B for the non-competing continuation awards. These reports cover the period from February 15, 2001 through February 15, 2002, and include the data for the end of the year report for FY 2000-2001.

Explanation: These data have not been available as grantees have not systematically tracked progress made by former migrant students past completion of the 1-year CAMP effort. The Office of Migrant Education is working with grantees to start collecting these data. A baseline will be established in 2002.

Frequency: Annually.
