The Migrant Education Program identifies migratory children as those students whose education has been interrupted during the previous 36 months due to a move for the purpose of finding seasonal or temporary work in agriculture or fishing. The mobile lifestyle of a migrant family faces numerous barriers; migrant children miss school because they or their parents are migratory agricultural or fishery workers, they tend to have more health-related issues and can be credit deficient.
More information about recruitment at the state level can be accessed at www.msdr.org and www.k12.wa.us/student-success/equity-education/migrant-and-bilingual-education.
