Migrant Education Program
Definition - Any student who has moved with his/her parents in the past 36 months for the purpose of working in agriculture work (crop harvesting, nursery work, dairy production, dairy or vegetable or meat processing).
Identification - When the student registers, each student's parent or guardian should complete the Home Language Survey which includes the Migrant Education Program Occupational Survey. If the survey indicates a "yes" response to question 1 or 4, the student could possibly be a migrant. The determination will be made by state migrant personnel.
If you have any questions regarding migrant students, please contact Oveta Carey, Federal Programs Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org
