Student Support Services

Migrant Education

Migrant Education is a federally funded program designed to provide supplementary educational and support services to eligible migrant students. Migrant Education students enrolled at KVUSD receive these services through California Migrant Education Region 2. Region 2 has a cumulative enrollment of more than 14,000 students (ages 3-21) in 22 Northern California Counties. The migrant population consists of numerous ethnic and language groups (Spanish, Punjabi, Hmong, Mien, Laos, Vietnamese, and English).

Any student enrolled in KVUSD (ages 3-21) who have not graduated from high school (or equivalency) in the United States and has moved within the last three years, due to economic necessity, with a parent or guardian who is a migrant worker, is eligible for Migrant Education services. A migrant worker is a person who has moved within the last three years to work in agriculture (e.g., crops, livestock, forestry-except lumber mills) and fishing. Out of School Youth (ages 14-21) may qualify for services on their own as migrant workers. The eligibility period is three years from the date of the child’s or youth’s most recent 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.

Services for KVUSD Migrant Education students include:

  • Four-week summer school program
  • Speech and Debate club for middle and high school students
  • Winter break binational teacher for students who travel to Mexico
  • The development of an individualized learning plan for each migrant education student designed to ensure progress toward high school graduation, and college and career readiness
