The goal of the Migrant Education Program is to ensure that all migrant students reach challenging academic standards and graduate with a high school diploma (or complete a HSED) that prepares them for responsible citizenship, further learning, and productive employment. This website provides information, tools, and resources to promote the interstate coordination of migrant programs.
2023 National Migrant PASS Student of the Year: Juan Oscar Leal (ND)
The National PASS Program provides a successful option to migrant programs seeking flexibility for their students. Many schools use PASS because courses may not be offered when a student needs them. Courses may be used to make up failed credits, to remediate in basic subjects, to assist with dropout recovery, or to offer elective credit. Students do not need to access a computer or the internet to complete a course, but there are options for students who choose to do so. Students can work on PASS courses during the school year or summer. Courses are aligned to common core standards. PASS consists of self-contained, semi-independent study courses. The program is provided by the National PASS Coordinating Committee comprised of migrant educators across the country and is used in more than 25 states.
North Dakota’s summer migrant programs take place out of Grafton and Manvel, North Dakota. Students attend classes in June and July. Oscar attended Manvel Migrant School every summer.
