Migrant Education - 2003

CFDA Number: 84.011 - Migrant Education_State Grant Program


Goal 8: To assist all migrant students in meeting challenging academic standards and achieving graduation from high school (or a GED program) with an education that prepares them for responsible citizenship, further learning, and productive employment.
Objective 8.1 of 1: Along with other Federal programs and state and local reform efforts, the Migrant Education Program (MEP) will contribute to improved school performance of migrant children.
Indicator 8.1.1 of 6: Meeting or Exceeding State Performance Standards: In an increasing number of states, an increasing percentage of migrant students at the elementary school level will meet or exceed the proficient level on state assessments in reading.

Explanation: 2002 data are not yet available.  
Additional Source Information: NCLB Consolidated State Report.

Frequency: Annually.
Collection Period: 2001 - 2002
Data Available: June 2003

Limitations: The States reporting assessment data for migrant students are fluctuating from one year to the next. States are also re-designing assessment systems and changing the definition of ''proficient.'' As such the indicator does not represent performance on the same States or measure from one year to the next. In addition, until the passage of NCLB, limited numbers of migrant children have been included in the assessment systems.

Improvements: It is expected that this indicator will have greater validity and reliability, over time, as the State assessment systems become more stable and the systems include all migrant students.

 
Indicator 8.1.2 of 6: Meeting or Exceeding State Performance Standards: In an increasing number of states, an increasing percentage of migrant students at the middle school level will meet or exceed the proficient level on state assessments in reading.
