National Migrant Education Hotline
(National Referral Service for Migrant Families)
Migrant Education is a national federally-funded program that provides services to children and youth ages 3 to 21, whose education has been interrupted in the past three years because of the need for migrant parents to relocate to other
areas in order to find agricultural or seasonal work.
Migrant Education Region VIII serves migrant students and their families in 54 school districts throughout Tulare and Kings counties. Our goal is to work in cooperation with individual school districts to supplement the district's educational program and to promote each migrant student's academic achievement through advocacy, coordination and collaboration. Parents are an integral part of the education of the migrant education program. District, Regional and State parent advisory councils play an active role in advocating, planning, and implementing services for migrant students.
The Migrant Education Program Department empowers the child and family unit with the tools, through advocacy, education and collaboration, to determine their destiny as healthy and creative participants in an ever-changing world.
We are the catalyst for transforming migrant students into successful leaders who constantly learn and maximize their human potential.
