Title I, Part C, Migrant Education Program Data Tables-2002-03 thru 2005-06
The U.S. Department of Education collects data annually from State Educational Agencies (SEAs) concerning the operation of the Title I, Part C, Migrant Education Program (MEP). The data are collected through Part I and Part II of the Consolidated State Performance Report (CSPR). The data provide the Department with information on: the number of eligible migrant children; student characteristics (e.g., mobility, English language proficiency, priority-for-services); student participation in MEP-funded services, staffing levels, and on the academic achievement of migrant students (including graduation and dropout rates and state assessment results). In addition, the Department has collected child count data annually from SEAs via the Migrant Child Count Report. Beginning in 2007-08, the Department will begin to collect child count data via the CSPR only.
The following Excel files contain tables that were created by the Office of Migrant Education (OME) using CSPR and Migrant Child Count Report data from 2002-03, 2003-04, 2004-05, and 2005-06. The tables were developed by the OME to help summarize the data and to present the data in a format that are easy to review and use.
