Guidance Available for Migrant Education Program
The Migrant Education Program of No Child Left Behind provides grants to help establish or improve education programs for migrant children. These grants assist states in improving educational opportunities for migrant children to help them succeed in the regular school program, meet the challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards that all children are expected to meet, and graduate from high school.
The U.S. Department of Education has recently released updated guidance for administrators to help them with the implementation of the Migrant Education Program. The guidance provides information on state application and funding, child eligibility, identification and recruitment, comprehensive needs assessment and service delivery plan, provision of services, coordination, parental involvement, program evaluation, program performance and child count reporting, fiscal requirements, state administration, and cross-cutting issues.
The guidance is available online.
