In Region 1, we have a slogan that states: "Nuestro Propósito: Servir a los estudiantes migrantes!". Simply translated, our purpose is to serve the migrant students in our region. Our job is to ensure that the federal goals are implemented locally to in a way that provides the greatest benefit to the migrant students and their families in the countries that we serve: Santa Clara, San Benito, San Mateo, Alameda, San Francisco, and Santa Cruz.
The general purpose of the Migrant Education Program is to ensure that migrant children fully benefit from the same free public education provided to other children. To achieve this purpose, the Migrant Education Program helps local operating agencies address the special educational needs of migrant children to better enable migrant children to succeed academically. More specifically, Section 1301 of Title I - Part C states that the purposes of the Migrant Education Program are to:
Support high-quality and comprehensive educational programs for migrant children in order to reduce the educational disruption and other problems that result from repeated moves;
Ensure that migrant 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 migrant children are provided with appropriate educational services (including supportive services) that address their special needs in a coordinated and efficient manner;
Ensure that migrant 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 migrant children overcome educational disruption, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, various health-related problems, and other factors that inhibit their ability to do well in school, and to prepare them to make a successful transition to postsecondary education or employment; and
Ensure that migrant children benefit from State and local systemic reforms.
