Title One Migrant Education

The Title One Migrant Education Program provides supplemental education and supportive services to more than one million eligible children nationally. These services help children of migrant workers overcome the disadvantages they face, including disruption to their education. 

The Program has been at the Head Start Child & Family Development Center since 1994.

To qualify for the program a child must be between the ages of 3-21 years of age, moved with a parent/guardian within the past three years across state or school district boundaries and some country boundaries. The parent / guardian of the child's immediate family should be currently employed in or seeking to obtain temporary or seasonal employment in an agricultural, fishing, or food processing activity.
The program is in operation for six weeks during June and July. Classroom activities and instructional materials are based on a curriculum developed specifically for migrant children. Students have access to classroom computers with developmentally appropriate software, emphasizing language, reading and math development.
Classrooms are staffed with certified teachers. In addition, if needed, the classrooms are staffed with bilingual staff to meet the language and cultural needs of students and families. Teachers from the Bi-national Summer Teacher Exchange Program, Foster Grandparents, community volunteers and parents are also essential members of the summer program staff. Backpacks and school supplies are provided to participating summer program students to prepare them for the regular school year.
