ESC REGION 11 MIGRANT EDUCATION PROGRAM

DID YOU KNOW?

A family, enrolled in your district, has been absent or goes out of town. Upon return the student mentions to her teacher that the family went to another town to work. The student also explains that they stayed with her uncle temporarily. The family picked pecans while they were gone in order to earn money to pay the electric bill. That, my friends, is a migratory family.


Migratory families are not specifically immigrants. They do not belong to one specific ethnic group. Migratory families have one member or more in their family who do temporary, agriculture work, out of economic necessity.

THE NEW OCCUPATIONAL SURVEY IS HERE!

PLEASE USE THIS ATTACHED DOCUMENT TO COMPLETE YOUR NEW REGISTRATION, ONLINE REGISTRATION, TRANSFER REGISTRATION, AND RETURNING REGISTRATION PACKETS.

TIP: It would be beneficial to your district for each campus registrar or school office secretary to have a hard copy of this form to hand out if they become aware of a potential migratory family.

THANK YOU! Most everyone has submitted immunization records for every migrant student in your district. That means we're ahead of schedule! Thank you for being proactive. For those of you that have new migrant students, please get those records into us by February 15th, at migrant@esc11.net. Also, please don't forget to send report cards each reporting period (e.g. each six-weeks).
