Migrant children

What programs are available for children of migrant families?

The Office of Migrant Education (OME) administers four grant programs that provide academic and supportive services to the children of families who migrate to find work in the agricultural, fishing, and timber industries.  The programs are designed to help migrant children, who are uniquely affected by the combined effects of poverty, language and cultural barriers, and the migratory lifestyle, to meet the same challenging academic content and student academic achievement standards that are expected of all children.  The migrant education program is based on the premise that, with the right supportive services, migrant children can achieve at the same level as their peers.
