    The Migrant Education Program is federally funded and designed to help ensure that migratory children who move among the states are not penalized in any manner by disparities among states in curriculum, graduation requirements, or state academic content and student academic achievement standards. The Migrant Education Program includes:

    • After-school tutoring - Tutoring in English Language Arts and math for elementary and secondary students.
    • Speech and debate club - This club helps to provide critical thinking and public speaking skills. The club competes with local, regional, and statewide teams.
    • Migrant Ed summer school - This program extends learning through the summer and offers fun and engaging project-based learning options. 
    • Adelante - This is a summer program for 6th through 12th graders, run by Migrant Ed at Santa Rosa Junior College. The program provides credit recovery with a central component of cultural pride in being migrant and Latino.
    • Migrant parent meetings - These meetings are held monthly to give parents a voice in how federal funding may be spent. Presenters are based on parents' interests and needs. All Migrant Ed families are invited to participate. Snacks and childcare are provided.
