Migrant Services

Debbi Rose
Special Education Director Migrant/ESL Program Coordinator

The Migrant Education Program is a Federal Program, Title 1 Part C. The primary goal of the program is to ensure that all migrant students reach challenging academic standards AND graduate with a high school diploma (or complete a GED) that prepares them for responsible citizenship, further learning, and productive employment.

The Migrant Education Program identifies families that have moved into our school district within the last three years and qualify due to their work in an agriculture related field, such as tobacco, timber, hay, livestock, dairy, fruit/vegetable crops, or a food processing plant.
