Migrant Education Program

Title I C

The Hamblen County Schools Migrant Education Program is designed to meet the needs of migrant students and families in Hamblen County. Migrant families are those families who moved within the last three years for the purpose of obtaining employment in agriculture or fishing. Frequent moves place migrant students at high-risk for failure and migrant education programs are designed to remove barriers to school enrollment, attendance, and achievement of migrant children.
