QUICK FACTS ABOUT MIGRANT STUDENTS

How would you describe a Migrant student?

His/her parents work in agriculture

The student moved with his/her family to follow this kind of work.

He/She is new to the area.

 

What does the Migrant Education Program do for these kids?

Since migrant students move so much, they often fall behind in school.

We help them catch up with their peers.

 

Immigrant Vs. Migrant

Immigrate is to come into another country to live permanently.

Migrate is to move (like birds in the winter).

For example, a family might live in Kentucky in the Summer to work in tobacco and move to Georgia in the Fall to harvest grapes.

 

STUDENTS DO NOT NEED TO BE HISPANIC TO BE IN THE MIGRANT EDUCATION PROGRAM; families qualify based on their migratory moves.
