The Rosemead Migrant Education Consortium in Region 10 consists of 5 districts; El Monte City, El Monte Union, Garvey, Mountain View, and Rosemead. Rosemead School District is the administrative district for the Consortium, and houses the Administrator, the clerk, and 2 recruiters. Funds to support the program come from Title 1, Part C.
The Migrant Education Program provides programs and services to those eligible children within the districts whose family members have moved within the last three years in order to secure employment in agricultural, fishing, or related food processing activities. The components of the Migrant Education Program seek to provide supplemental services (once the parents or guardians have been informed of the child’s eligibility through a confirmed Certificate of Eligibility), over and above the basic District programs, to meet the special educational and health needs of migrant children that arise from their family’s migratory life style.
Services provided to eligible children within the Consortium include, but are not limited to the following: Saturday supplemental classes (K-8), school readiness (PK), Parent and Child Interactive Literacy classes (PK and their parents), parent classes and workshops, after school academic support/mentoring (7/8), PASS/Cyber High credit recovery classes (high school, Out of School Youth-OSY), summer academic classes integrating ELA, Math, and Science, Outdoor Education, residential university experiences for middle and high school youth, conferences for students and parents, health services (vision, dental), and nutrition. In addition, the Migrant Education Mini-corps Program provides teacher support at the elementary level for both Saturdays and summer programs, as well as support during the regular school day.
