The purpose of the Migrant Program is to remove the educational barriers encountered by students who are living a migratory lifestyle.
A student is MIGRANT if they meet the following criteria:
Within the last 3 years the child moved alone or with a parent/guardian/spouse and the move was from one school district to another
The move involved a change in residence, the primary purpose of the move was to seek or obtain employment in an agricultural or fishing activity, the employment is temporary or seasonal, and does not require permanent relocation
There are currently over 200 children enrolled in the Cassia Joint School District Migrant Program!
