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."
