ISBE DELL e-Broadcast 2008.92 - Funding Available for Districts Serving Migratory Children

Dear Educators Serving ELLs:

In March, the Illinois State Board of Education will release an application for funding of migrant summer school programs in districts with qualifying migrant students under Title I, Part C of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001.

Students eligible for the program are

  • children ages 0-21 who have not graduated from high school
  • who have moved within the past three years across state or school district lines
  • with a parent or guardian or on their own to obtain temporary or seasonal
  • work in agricultural production, fishing or food processing industries.

A certified recruiter must document that children qualify as migrant students. ISBE can assist districts with this process. To request assistance in identifying eligible migrant children, districts may complete the survey found at http://www.isbe.net/bilingual/pdfs/migrant_survey.pdf.

For more information, contact Beth Robinson at 312- 814-3850.
