In brief, the term migrant child means a child who is, or whose parent or spouse is, a migratory agricultural worker, including a migratory dairy worker, or a migratory fisher, and who, in the preceding 36 months, in order to obtain, or accompany such parent or spouse, in order to obtain, temporary or seasonal employment in agricultural or fishing work (A) has moved from one school district to another; (B) in a State that is comprised of a single school district, has moved from one administrative area to another within such district; or (C) resides in a school district of more than 15,000 square miles, and migrates a distance of 20 miles or more to a temporary residence to engage in a fishing activity. In order to be included in the count, the child must have been eligible for at least one day within the reporting period, have a completed Certificate of Eligibility and been entered into the State‚Äôs migrant database. Under Title I, Part C of ESEA, States are required to provide an annual Migrant Education Program (MEP) child count. Each State must have sufficient procedures to ensure that it is collecting and reporting numbers of students who are eligible for the MEP. ; Source: EDFacts/Consolidated State Performance Report, 2008-09: http://www2.ed.gov/admins/lead/account/consolidated/index.html; Data Uploaded On: 01/20/2011
