Task 3: Conduct a Comprehensive Needs Assessment

Guideline:As noted by the Office of Migrant Education, "Under Title I, Part C, Education of Migratory Children as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), State educational agencies (SEA) must deliver and evaluate Migrant Education Program (MEP)-funded services to migratory children based on a State plan that reflects the results of a current statewide comprehensive needs assessment." Educators involved with migrant programs need to be aware of their state's comprehensive needs assessment and its local application.



Comprehensive Needs Assessment for Migrant Education

This resource is an online planner designed to assist with implementing the comprehensive needs assessment process. This planner results from a pilot study sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Migrant Education in conjunction with the Comprehensive Center Network. The Migrant Education Departments of Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Texas participated as pilot states.


Comprehensive Needs Assessment Toolkit

Under Title I, Part C - Education of Migratory Children of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, state education agencies must conduct a comprehensive Needs Assessment. The Comprehensive Needs Assessment Toolkit is the first in a series of three documents that have been developed through the Office of Migrant Education. Subsequent documents include the Service Delivery Plan Toolkit and the Program Evaluation Toolkit.

Taken together, these three toolkits provide a guide for a continuous improvement cycle of program planning, implementation, and evaluation. In this cycle, states identify the current needs and priorities of migrant students and families, select appropriate strategies to meet those needs, implement services that reflect such strategies, and assess the degree to which planned services have been successful at meeting identified needs.
