The Migrant Education Program is a supplemental program that assists students to meet California and local standards for student achievement through educational instruction. We also refer migrant families to receive health services, as health is crucial to one’s opportunity to achieve academic success. As a result of frequent moves during the school year, most migrant students demonstrate educational needs in reading, math, and health services. It is the purpose and goal of the Wasco Union High School District Migrant Program to identify migrant students in order to make available and provide educational instruction to promote optimal physical, intellectual, and social development.
