Alleghany County Schools Migrant Education Program is open to all Hispanic and non-Hispanic people who migrate from location to location for temporary or seasonal work. The program is a federally funded program that identifies migratory children and their families. A migratory family is defined as a family or child under the age of 22 that has not graduated from high school and migrates from location to location. This lifestyle affects children's education because of the constant educational disruption due to the family following the different growing seasons of many different crops. These federal funds help ensure that migrant children receive appropriate educational services that address their learning needs.
