Saturday School Classes – Our curriculum is aligned to state and national standards, is researched based, and contains relevant, high-interest content and concepts. Classes emphasize English Language Development, Reading and Writing skills based on District and State Standards. Since Pre-K to adult classes are offered, all of the family members are able to enjoy Saturday Sessions of learning and fun.
Family Literacy Program (MEES) – An important component of our Saturday Classes is our Migrant Education Even Start Program, which is designed to include parents in the education of their pre-school children. Parents are required to participate in the adult education component of the MEES program. The family education model is designed to assist migrant parents by providing instruction on parenting skills and English as a Second Language. If needed, childcare for infant siblings is available.
Extended Day Program – After school program for grades K-12 offered in selected schools. We work with teachers in providing standards based instruction to strengthen literacy, science & math skills.
Summer Program – Migrant students, grades, K-6, are invited to attend summer school at a selected site. Teachers use a thematic, hands-on interdisciplinary approach to instruction, with a focus on math/science and language.
Leadership Camp – Migrant students that take part in the 3 day Leadership Camp are provided with authentic learning experiences that promote the development of communication skills, critical thinking, collaboration and understanding the importance of teamwork. These authentic learning experience include: Adventure hike, nature studies, challenge and adventure rope course, career exploration, natural history, and outdoor camping.
Intersession – Offered to K-12 Migrant students during their winter or spring off-track time at a selected school site.
Portable Assisted Study Sequence (PASS) – The PASS program is offered on Saturdays and after school. This program offers high school migrant students in grades 9-12 the opportunity to “catch up on credits,” by working with a teacher on individual units and then passing required exams. Five credits per class can be earned upon successful completion of exams and units of study. Students are expected to succeed, to improve their self-confidence and to receive necessary credits toward graduation.
Cyber High – Migrant students in grades 10-12 enrolled in Cyber High work at their own pace, use the Internet for instruction; take test online, and makeup the courses they’ve missed. Cyber High provides students a research based innovative curriculum that will help them to graduate and prepare for success in the future.
Adult English as a Second Language Classes – Our (E.S.L.) program offers adults with non – or limited English proficiency an opportunity to acquire and learn English communication skills including listening, speaking, reading and writing.
