Task 2: Identify and Recruit Migrant Students

Guideline: As noted by the Office of Migrant Education, "Identifying and recruiting eligible migrant children, is a cornerstone of the migrant education program (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 and enroll the child in the program. As each State Education Agency (SEA) is responsible for the identification and recruitment of all eligible migrant children in the State, it is important for SEAs to develop and implement policies and procedures that efficiently and effectively meet their responsibility to correctly identify and recruit all eligible migrant children residing in their State."





The Eastern Stream Center on Resources and Training (ESCORT) offers "expertise in teaching strategies for at-risk students, such as migrant youth, low-performing readers, English language learners, and students with disabilities." In migrant education, they focus on comprehensive need assessments, identification and recruitment, and dropout prevention.
