IDENTIFICATION AND RECRUITMENT (I/R)

Identification means determining the location and presence of migrant children in a school district.

Recruitment means making contact with migrant families, explaining the Migrant Education Program, securing the necessary information to make a determination that the child is eligible for the Program, and recording the basis of the child’s eligibility on a Certificate of Eligibility. Upon successful recruitment of a migrant family, eligible children may be enrolled in the Washington State Migrant Education Program.
