The Texas Migrant Education Program strives to empower educators working with migrant children to collaborate in designing programs which build upon student strengths, eliminate barriers, provide continuity of education, and produce levels of performance for migrant students that meet or exceed those of the general student population. Parent involvement is viewed as an essential part of the educational process, and home-school-community partnerships provide the support necessary to improve student achievement.
Because issues of mobility, language, and poverty affect the migratory student's opportunities to receive excellence and equity in the classroom, the Migrant Education Program strives to provide an education experience which can help children reduce the educational disruptions and other problems that can result from repeated moves. Texas migrant children deserve the same opportunities to reach the same challenging state performance standards that all children are expected to meet.
GISD partners with ESC Region XIII in a Shared Services Agreement to identify and serve the migrant students in our district.For more information, please contact:Tiffani Walker512.943.5000 x.6031
