About Migrant Education Region 2
Butte County Office of Education's Migrant Education is a federally funded program designed to provide supplementary educational and support services to eligible migrant students. Migrant Education contracts with the Galt Joint Union Elementary School District (GJUESD) to provide education services to students in Pre-Kindergarten through 8th Grade and their families in Galt.
Currently, the GJUESD enrolls over 225 migrant children in Pre-Kindergarten through 8th Grade. Galt has the highest migrant population in Region 2.
District Migrant Education Services
GJUESD partners with Migrant Education to provide the following education services:
- After School Invention: Migrant students receive priority enrollment in the district After School Education & Safety (ASES) Program and also receive Mathematics and English Language Arts intervention taught by certificated teachers 2 days per week. Speech and Debate is also provided at the middle school.
- Center-Based Preschool: Migrant Education funds preschool for eligible 3 and 4 year olds at the Fairsite School Readiness Center.
- Home-Based Preschool Program: Home-based preschool services are provided to migrant 3 and 4 year olds who cannot access the district’s site-based services.
- Summer Academy: Pre-Kindergarten through 7th Grade migrant students attend a 4-week summer academy taught by district staff. Instruction, which focuses on Mathematics and English Language Arts, is thematic and integrated with hands-on Science and Technology Lessons.
- Parents Advisory Committee (PAC): The PAC meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month at Fairsite in Room 20 from 4:00pm-5:00pm. Topics of interest and guest speakers highlight each meeting. All parents with Pre-Kindergarten through 12th Grade students are welcome to attend.
