The purpose of the Migrant Education Region III Program is to provide supplementary instructional and supportive services during both the regular year and summer/intersession to enable migrant children to obtain a quality education.
Region III provides supplemental services during the regular school year by funding migrant certificated and paraprofessional staff to supplement the schools' base programs through individual and small group instruction to identified migrant students. Migrant Secondary Counselor Assistants/Tutors work with district counselors to provide academic and career guidance and leadership opportunities to secondary migrant students.
During the summer, Migrant Education provides additional instructional services by jointly funding summer schools at the elementary level and additional staff to tutor secondary migrant students for district proficiency examinations and credit accrual. An outreach home based instructional program is also available for Migrant students not attending site programs.
Services may vary from one district to another, depending upon the numbers of students identified and their needs.
