|2010-2011||CALIFORNIA||121||634||SEA||The number of eligible migratory students decreased by 10 percent or more between SY2009-10 and SY2010-11.||
There was a 12% decrease in the 12 month Count of eligible migrant children. Some factors contributing to the decrease in the number of eligible migrant children are:
|2010-2011||COLORADO||121||634||SEA||The number of eligible migratory students decreased by 10 percent or more between SY2009-10 and SY2010-11.||
The Colorado MEP decrease is attributed to several factors:
1. Migrant families who have ended their 3 year eligibility and elected to remain permanent residents and discontinue migration.
2. A decline in the number of available temporary agricultural employment opportunities based on the current OME ID&R policy.
|2010-2011||HAWAII||121||634||SEA||The number of eligible migratory students increased by 10 percent or more between SY2009-10 and SY2010-11.||
Over the last four years, we have had an increase in the number of eligible students who qualify for the migrant education program. This increase is due in part to the intense emphasis we placed on our ID&R efforts. By being able to hire more recruiters for our school complexes and the efforts of the schools to send out migrant surveys, this has allowed us to reach out to more eligible families that we missed in the past.
|2010-2011||ILLINOIS||121||634||SEA||The number of eligible migratory students decreased by 10 percent or more between SY2009-10 and SY2010-11.||
The number of eligible migratory students for 2010-2011 is about 37.22% lower than 2009-2010. This decrease is attributed to students' end of eligibility, employers hiring more adults with no children, changes to ID&R practices related to qualifying "temporary" work activities such as pork processing, chicken and turkey processing, and fruit processing. It can be attributed to the increase in gas prices and Immigration laws.(The numbers reported for 2011 (911) is accurate as it is confirmed with MIDAS reports).
|2010-2011||MAINE||121||634||SEA||The number of eligible migratory students increased by 10 percent or more between SY2009-10 and SY2010-11.||
The percentage increase of the Category 1 Child Count from 2009-10 is a direct result of more effective and comprehensive identification and recruitment efforts; an increase in recruiting training; the introduction of tablet technology and Maine's electronic COE, accompanied by a detailed/comprehensive data quality control system in the field and at the SEA level.
The decrease (12%) this season to Category 1 count was the result of:
(1) Smaller number of 16-21 OSY workers in the State
(2) Increase Immigration Raids including while on the road
(3)High gas prices (limits mobility as well as agri-business production)
Michigan experienced a decline in migrant counts primarily due to the following factors:
After a completion of a recent attrition study, it was determined that any new migrant families that came to Missouri to work at some of our largest pork and poultry processing plants would no longer qualify as making temporary moves without making a worker's statement. This caused a larger number of students who previously would have been eligible to no longer be eligible. The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education will be re-evaluating the results of the study over the next year to ensure accuracy.
|2010-2011||NEBRASKA||121||634||SEA||The number of eligible migratory students increased by 10 percent or more between SY2009-10 and SY2010-11.||
The state of Nebraska had a 15% increase in the number of students reported for the category 1 Child Count in the 2010-2011 year compared to the number of students reported for Category 1 Child Count in the 2009-2010 year. The increase was due to 1) revisions of child eligibility from the October 2009 Draft Non-Regulatory Guidance; 2) the state's improved recruiting efforts of project recruiters who focus on recruitment of children/youth outside of the K-12 setting in project areas and children/youth ages 0-21 in non-project areas.
The decrease in total eligible students can be attributed to the effects of the anti-immigrant sentiment which is causing fewer migrant workers and their families to migrate or take the risk of migrating too far from their home states/countries in fear of being harassed, detained or deported.
