Title 1-C Migrant Education Program
Do you fish, process fish, log, or farm? Title I-C is a federally funded program serving Migrant Education Students.
Migrant Education Students are:
- Children birth to 20 years old who have not graduated from high school.
- They travel or move with a parent or guardian for commercial fishing, subsistence fishing, fish processing, logging, or farming. Children over 14 years of age that have also worked in one of these migrant activities may qualify on their own.
- The move or travel is a minimum of 7 nights & 8 days over the course of a year. The days and nights do not need to be consecutive or the move/travel may be permanent.
- In Kodiak, the move/travel must be a minimum of 20 miles from the child's home for fishing or fish processing activities. For logging and farming activities the move/travel must be outside of the Kodiak Island Borough School District Boundaries.
