Migratory children deserve the same opportunities as their non-migratory classmates.

Our team of migrant education specialists work with districts and campuses throughout central Texas to help facilitate your campus' migrant education program.

College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP)

The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) assists students who are migratory or seasonal farmworkers (or children of such workers) enrolled in their first year of undergraduate studies at an Institution of Higher Education. The funding supports the completion of the first year of studies. There are currently seven CAMP projects in the state of Texas.

Early Literacy Program: A Bright Beginning

A Bright Beginning is an Early Literacy Program for 3- and 4-year old children in the Texas migrant program. It is a high-quality, research-based resource aligned to the Revised Texas Prekindergarten Guidelines, centered on cross-curricular themes.

Migrant Parent Advisory Committee

Our Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is comprised of migrant parents, school staff, and community professionals who have a vested interest in the academic success of migrant students. Our migrant Parent Advisory Committee represents stakeholders from school districts participating in our shared service agreement (SSA). Members offer critical feedback and guidance regarding programs and services made available to migrant students through consultation opportunities during the PAC meetings.

Out of School Youth

Out of School Youth (OSY) are individuals who are not currently enrolled in school and do not have a high school diploma or General Educational Development (GED) certificate.

The goal of the Migrant Education Program (MEP) is for all migrant OSY and Here to Work Youth to achieve positive outcomes, including the completion of a secondary education which can prepare them for college or assist them in becoming a productive member of the workforce.

Secondary Credit Accrual and Exchange

As secondary level students (grades 7-12) move from school to school, successful completion of graduation requirements must be monitored such as: updated regularly documentation of graduation plans, courses taken and recommended, partial credits earned, and other critical information.

Training and support in the New Generation System

New Generation System (NGS) is a web-based interstate information network that communicates demographic, educational, and health data on migrant students to educators throughout the nation. The system allows educators to record the movement of migrant students through the educational process by producing online records of a student’s educational progress and health profile. Educators can generate a student transfer document to facilitate academic placement as the student transfers schools. NGS also allows educators to generate various student-level, management, and Office of Migrant Education performance reports.

Training in Identification and Recruitment

Identifying and recruiting eligible migrant children is a cornerstone of the MEP. Identification means determining the presence and location of migratory children within a State. Recruitment means describing the benefits of the MEP to the child and his or her family and obtaining the necessary information to document the child's eligibility in order to enroll the child in the program.

The Office of Migrant Education (OME) has identified the proper and timely identification and recruitment of eligible students, as one of three programmatic areas of the Migrant Education Program to help attain the goal of assisting migrant children to achieve challenging academic standards and graduate from high school.
