Summer learning is essential to the education success of migrant students. NWESD Migrant Education team is excited to promote these opportunities either by supporting educators with their summer school programs or recruiting students for the different summer academy programs.
NWESD Migrant Summer Enrichment Program
In the summer of 2019, the NWESD Migrant Program team piloted a summer enrichment program for Migrant students in Whatcom County.
This program was made possible with support from
OSPI’s Title I Part C Migrant Education Program.
The migrant education program is proud to offer special engagement and learning events for Migrant Students. There are three different academies designed for specific age groups.
Dare to Dream Exploring Your Future is specifically designed for 8th and 9th grade migrant students between the ages of 13 to 15. For more information, view the MSDRS Dare to Dream Information Page.
Dare to Dream Academic Academy is designed for 10th and 11th grade migrant students and offers the opportunity for up to a .5 credit towards High School completion, once completing the program. For more information, view the MSDRS Dare to Dream Information Page.
Voices from the Field is a program to engage middle-school aged children of migrant workers in project-based learning experiences that will address multiple areas of academic learning including science, art, and communication skills. More information about Voices from the Field may be found below.
For more information about these academies or recruitment, please contact Enrique Lopez.
An essential demonstration of NWESD’s commitment to best serve our migrant students is our support of migrant summer school programming.
Each year, at the beginning of second semester, all eligible districts receive notification of potential funding from OSPI. NWESD’s Migrant Services team is here for all districts in western Washington to provide comprehensive technical assistance and iGrant support throughout every step of the application and program development process. It is our shared goal to make sure that all summer programming best fits the needs of our districts and the migrant students they serve.
