Parents, your involvement influences student academic success. Students with involved parents are more likely to get good grades, take more challenging classes, have better attendance, graduate and go to community or technical college or university.
School success and the road to graduation begins with our student’s first experiences as learners. Our Migrant Services team offers a variety of trainings and resources that support the professional development of districts and schools to support the school readiness of our migrant students.
Dates and registration information for upcoming trainings are available on the NWESD Course Registration site. Our Migrant Services team always welcomes your questions.
