Welcome to the Migrant Education Program, Title I, Part C
What is the Migrant Program?
The Migrant Education Program is a national program that annually provides supplemental education and support services to approximately 500,000 eligible migrant children nationwide to help them overcome educational disruptions and disadvantages, which result from their mobile lifestyle. The Migrant Education Program grew out of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act 1965 as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), which was signed into law on January 8, 2002, contains the major statutory provisions that apply to the Migrant Educational Program. The new law supersedes the previous law.
