Virginia Department of Education

April 2013


Title i part c federal allocations l.jpg

Title I, Part C, Federal Allocations

  • The U.S. Department of Education allocates Title I, Part C, funds to Virginia based on:

    • A formula that uses the Category 1 and Category 2 migrant child counts and state per-pupil expenditure (SSPE) data.

    • The formula establishes the “base amounts” for the state MEP allocations for FY 2003 and thereafter – these base amounts are equal to the FY 2002 allocation amounts [which were calculated using 2000-2001 child counts and FY 2000 SPPEs.]

    • The base amounts can be and have been adjusted to reflect state-reported downward revisions in the 2000-2001 child counts.

Once the federal allocation is determined, the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) awards subgrants through a formula to school divisions and higher educational institutions based on the enrollment of children eligible for the Migrant Education Program (MEP) served during the regular and summer school sessions.

Purpose of the Migrant Education Program

Migrant Subgrant funds must be used to:

  • support high-quality and comprehensive educational programs for migrant children to reduce the educational disruption and other problems that result from repeated moves;

  • ensure that migrant children who move among the states are not penalized in any manner by disparities among the states in curriculum, graduation requirements, and state academic content and student academic achievement standards;

  • ensure that migrant children receive full and appropriate opportunities to meet the same challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards that all children are expected to meet;

  • design programs to help migrant children overcome educational disruption, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, various health-related problems, and other factors that inhibit their ability to do well in school, and to prepare them to make a successful transition to postsecondary education or employment; and

  • ensure that migrant children benefit from state and local systemic reforms. [ESEA, Section 1301]
