Migrant Education

  • The mission of the Migrant Education Program is to ensure migrant students will reach challenging academic standards and graduate with a high school diploma or complete a General Equivalency Diploma (GED) while prioritizing academic needs. Partnerships between the school, home, and the community will empower migrant students to pursue higher educational opportunities and become responsible citizens in a demanding global society. 

    The purpose of the Migrant Education Program as identified by Federal law is to address the special educational needs of migratory children in a coordinated, integrated, and efficient way through high-quality and comprehensive programs in order to overcome barriers in education caused by interrupted schooling. Priority for services are given to migratory students who are failing or most at risk of failing to meet the State's student academic achievement standards, and whose regular school year education has been interrupted. 

    The Migrant Education Program at Point Isabel ISD is supported by Region 1 Educational Service Center.
