Identification and Recruitment
How to Identify Migrant Children
Each state is responsible for determining the number of migrant children residing within its boundaries. This can be a difficult task since the children who have the most need for services may not attend school. Furthermore, language and cultural barriers may make families hesitant to advocate for services on behalf of their children, particularly if they are not accustomed to looking for assistance from their child's school. Also, locations where migrant families reside may change due to changes in agriculture or in response to natural disasters affecting crop production. Therefore, it is important that states actively seek our migrant families and develop comprehensive recruitment plans that include both school-based and community-based activities.
Who Are Migrant Workers?
Migrant workers seek temporary or seasonal work in agriculture, fishing or related industries, including food processing. They follow the growing seasons across the country and are largely responsible for the cultivation and harvest of fruits, vegetables and many other food products.
Who is Eligible?
A child (ages 3-21) is considered "migrant" if the parent or guardian is a migratory worker in the agricultural, dairy, lumber (except lumber mills), or fishing industries and whose family has moved during the past three years. A "qualifying" move can range from moving across school district boundaries or from one state to another for the purpose of finding temporary or seasonal employment. A young adult may also qualify if he or she has moved on his own for the same reasons. The eligibility period is three years from the date of the last move. Eligibility is established through an interview conducted by a Migrant Education recruiter who visits both home and employment locations where migrant workers are employed. The law states that Migrant Education services are a priority for those students whose education has been interrupted during the current school year and who are failing, or are most at risk of failing to meet state content and performance standards.
