Title IC - Migrant

The Migrant Education Program is a federal funded program under NCLB, Title I-C. The purpose of the program is to:

  •      Support high-quality and comprehensive educational programs for migratory children to help reduce the
         educational disruptions and other problems that result from repeated moves;
  •      Ensure that migratory children who move among the States are not penalized in any manner by
         disparities among the States in curriculum, graduation requirements, and State academic content
         and student academic achievement standards;
  •      Ensure that migratory children are provided with appropriate educational services (including supportive
         services) that address their special needs in a coordinated and efficient manner;
  •      Ensure that migratory children receive full and appropriate opportunities to meet the same
         challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards that all children are
         expected to meet;
  •      Design programs to help migratory children overcome educational disruption, cultural and language
         barriers, social isolation, various health-related problems, and other factors that inhibit the ability of such
         children to do well in school, and to prepare such children to make a successful transition to
         postsecondary education or employment; and
  •      Ensure that migratory children benefit from State and local systemic reforms.
