Title I, Part C - Education of Migratory Children
Title I, Part C - Education of Migratory Children funds are used to support high-quality and comprehensive educational programs for migratory children. These programs aim to help reduce the educational disruptions and various problems that result from factors such as repeated moves, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, and health related problems that negatively impact migratory children’s ability to meet challenging state content and performance standards, and to prepare migratory children to make a successful transition to postsecondary education or employment. Due to a decrease in the migrant population in Glynn County, the system is no longer directly funded and participates in the state Migrant Education Program (MEP) Consortium.
Migratory children are initially identified via the Occupational Survey given to all parents when children are newly registered for school in Glynn County. The survey is also distributed annually to all enrolled students in Glynn County. The Occupational Surveys are collected from Central Registration and from the schools. The Director of Federal Programs sends all surveys where the parent has answered "yes," indicating that the family may meet the migrant criteria, to the MEP Consortium located at ABAC. The MEP service provider sends a recruiter to Glynn County to confirm the status. If the student needs services, personnel in the MEP Consortium make those arrangements in collaboration with Glynn County personnel. Migrant parents are invited to attend that regional Parent Advisory Council (PAC) meetings to provide feedback on the migrant program.
