Migrant Student Graduation Enhancement Program

About

The Migrant Student Graduation Enhancement Program strives to meet the special needs of Texas migrant high school students through the flexibility of distance learning. Migrant students can stay on track for on-time graduation by earning high school credits in the program's courses and exams.

Each year, we present at the annual Association of Migrant Educators in Texas (AMET) conference and offer webinars to share strategies with educators in Texas school districts and with interstate partners.
