Migrant Services Coordination
We seek to ensure that migrant students and their families have their needs for educational and support services met. We coordinate with many organizations around Oceana County to provide students and families with the support they need.
Early Childhood Education
We provide activities for home-based education directly involving parents and assist with school-based and other services like Headstart and Telamon to enhance performance opportunities for three- and four-year-old migrant students.
Migrant Education Database System (MEDS)
To better serve our migrant students we use this innovative information network that serves migrant children in Michigan. MEDS allows complete access and update capability to all students, enrollment, and facility information.
Monthly informational meetings take place during peak seasons to empower parents to be advocates and to take advantage of all available resources for the education of their children.
We assist with the transition to postsecondary education through coordination with MSU’s CAMP program to ensure that all migrant students are provided with the opportunity for postsecondary education.
Secondary Credit Accrual
High School aged migrant students that are missing credits due to their mobility have the option to recover those credits through the use of the PASS program. The class may be taken during the regular school day or after-school and evening hours are also available.
