Kansas Migrant Education Program

Migrant families are a highly mobile population and migrant lifestyle creates many obstacles for migrant children.The Kansas Migrant Education Program is designed to address the unique needs of identified migrant children and their families. To achieve this purpose, the Kansas State Department of Education helps the local educational agencies by providing the following:

  • Support for high-quality and comprehensive educational programs for migrant children in order to reduce the educational disruption and other problems that result from repeated moves;
  • Ensure that migrant children who move among the states are not penalized in any manner by disparities among the states in curriculum, graduation requirements, and state academic content and student academic achievement standards;
  • Ensure that migrant children are provided with appropriate educational services (including supportive services) that address their special needs in a coordinated and efficient manner;
  • Ensure that migrant children benefit from all state and local programs.
