Migrant Program

Pasco School District Migrant Education Program logo

Pasco School District's Migrant Program is a federally-funded program designed to meet the unique educational needs of migrant children. The Pasco School District program is designed to serve migrant students and their families in all of our schools by providing services that support student progress toward meeting district and state academic standards.

A migrant child is a child of a migrant agricultural worker or fisher who moves with their family from one school district to another so a parent or other member of the immediate family might secure temporary or seasonal employment in agriculture, fishing, or related food processing activities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Migrant Parent Advisory Council (MPAC)

Parental involvement is an integral part of all Title I programs, including the Migrant Education Program (MEP). It is important for parents and schools to develop partnerships and build an ongoing dialogue to improve student achievement. In order to receive MEP funds, school districts must implement programs, activities and procedures that effectively involve migrant parents.

Studies have found that students with involved parents are more likely to:

  • Earn high grades and test scores and enroll in higher-level programs
  • Pass their classes, earn credits and be promoted
  • Attend school regularly
  • Graduate and go on to postsecondary education
