The Migrant Program is designed to ensure that our migratory students receive full and appropriate opportunities to meet the challenging state academic content and achievement standards that all of our students are expected to meet. The Migrant Program should compliment and target the needs of the students we serve.
During the school year 2020-2021, each K-12 Migrant student will have a grade level assessment completed by the classroom teacher which will be collected and analyzed by the District Migrant Team. Community Liaisons will work in collaboration with the Department of Supplemental Services to oversee and coordinate the District Migrant Program. CUSD offers two full-time community liaisons. This assists parents and families with any language barriers or needs as they work to better access the system. This also allows our district to network and collaborate with the various community agencies throughout Fresno County.
During the school year, 2020-2021, all parents of pre-kindergarten children ages 3.5 to 4.11 years will be encouraged to enroll their preschool child(ren) in a recognized preschool program as evidence in a contact log. Community Liaisons will meet with parents to inform and encourage preschool attendance monitor and report on the students attending preschool.
In addition, 100% of identified out of school youth students will receive information about GED programs and job training programs within 10 days of being identified as Migrant as evidenced by Migrant records. Community Liaisons will inform the out of school youth student of the options for earning a GED or entering a job training program.
By May 2020, community liaisons will meet with all Migrant students and their families to review a learning packet of needed school supplies including MAIS home study packets as evidenced by a parent signature. Students will receive the school materials packets appropriate to their school grade during June – August or within 10 days of being identified Migrant for new Migrant students.
CUSD also offers several different summer school sessions that are designed to target the specific needs of students throughout the district to allow for increased attendance. These programs are offered in the five instructional areas and allow students easier access to the program. The sessions include intervention opportunities for students in need of additional support, high school coursework, enrichment and targeted remediation.
The Migrant students have the opportunity to participate in the Summer Science Camp at Scout Island, which is hosted by the Fresno County Superintendent of Schools' Migrant Program. The Summer Camp at Scout Island is similar to the Migrant Scholars Program. The Migrant Students will be participating in a variety of fun activities and lessons that support them.
Pre-K Data Analysis:
Working with our Kindergarten teachers, CUSD monitors progress of our Pre-K students. The data shows how each Migrant Pre-K student is progressing. Although hard academic testing data, is not captured on this age group we have enough soft data from the Regional Needs Assessment, home visits, health assessments, RIF handouts, and visits with the parents of these students to make decisions about academic welfare. We encourage all of our families with preschoolers to enroll their preschoolers in a state preschool or the MEES preschool program. Our analysis for this age group has determined that language development and pre-reading skills should continue to be the focus. This data also assists in the design of kindergarten programs.
K-8 Data Analysis (Include CUSD K and Grade 1, SBAC and ELPAC data, as well as other indicators, as available):
First priority for services goes to our K-8 Migrant students who have had their school year interrupted. Next priority goes to our established Migrant students who are in the lower levels of proficiency on the ELPAC. Any student falling below proficiency has not met California state standards.
Because we recognize the disadvantage our Migrant English Language Learners have when trying to access school curriculum, we work with school sites to be sure classroom placement and teacher selection is maximized for the student. Students who need extra instruction and help with assigned work are encouraged to attend after school, before school, and lunch time intervention programs at their school site.
All failing or at risk of failing Migrant students are encouraged to attend summer session for targeted instruction for continue academic progress.
9-12 Data Analysis (Include SBAC, and ELPAC):
First priority for services goes to our grades 9-12 students who have had their school year interrupted. The students not at standards on the State Assessment represented through the various grade levels with the higher numbers at 6th, 7th, 8th and 11th grades. Intervention programs at the high school sites and extra help through instructional assistants as well as peer tutoring offer the Migrant student the opportunity to keep up with curriculum needs. Proper classroom and teacher placement is essential for academic success. Students who need to make up extra credits are connected with our district Independent Study program, our district Online program and/or our district Adult Education Program.
Clovis Unified strives to be America’s benchmark of excellence in education. We work diligently to hire only qualified personnel to work with our students. Because of our fine reputation, we have many candidates for most all positions. Staff and community members are involved in the selection of new teachers and instructional assistants. All Migrant candidates meet with a department hiring panel that interviews potential candidates about their educational philosophies, experiences, and methodologies. Members then provide input to the director concerning their recommendations. Once a candidate is selected at the site level, they proceed through a discussion with a selected group of migrant parents and a final interview to ensure they match up with the district and school’s vision and students’ needs.
For Clovis Unified
School District, the two Community Liaisons review a variety of data
points for student identification; work in collaboration with community
agencies, working with local farms and agri-businesses, as well as district
The liaisons personally contact the all new families to the district and schedule appointments to share information regarding the Migrant Program. At that time, it is determined if they qualify for the program and the necessary forms are completed.
The Community Liaisons also go the packing houses, apartments and agriculture fields to share information with Migrant families. The Migrant Community Liaisons continue to recruit Pre-K, K-12 and Out of School Youth as evidenced by regional reports.
Networking with CUSD departments Child Development, Campus Catering, Health Centers and Adult School has been a tremendous source for recruiting migrant families. The Migrant Community Liaisons work with school site staff, Child Development Department, Food Services Department, Health Centers and a variety of other district departments to obtain lists of the names of possible new students and families enrolled in the district. Fresno County Superintendent of Schools offers monthly trainings that assist our liaisons with additional tools and information to use while working with families across the district. For more information contact Rebecca Rodriguez @ 327-0668.
Local or Formative Assessments:
The following formative assessments are used to monitor the progress and mastery of students as it relates to the English Language Proficiency Assessment of California. This data is used to monitor and adjust instruction in the classroom based upon the individual student needs throughout the school year. The data also serves to establish appropriate grouping, intervention, remediation and summer programs of our Migrant Education Students.

development for all employees is critical to providing quality supplemental
instruction for our students. Clovis Unified staff development provides
a full range of teacher development and support programs to serve teachers
and classified aides at all stages of the “Learning to Teach Continuum”. It is
the intent of each school within Clovis Unified that every teacher and
instructional assistant receives instruction and support so that they become
successful educators. The “Learning Continuum” provides opportunities for
teachers and instructional assistants to deepen their knowledge about teaching
and learning, leading to quality instruction for the students. The Department
of Supplemental Services conducts workshops for all instructional assistants
twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. The topics and
presentation revolve around providing and modeling instructional strategies
that the instructional assistants can take back to the classroom and use in
small group instructional opportunities. In addition to district sponsored
staff development, the CUSD Migrant Staff attends the identification and
recruitment meetings, Senior Day at California State University Fresno, CE
workshops, and State, Local, and Categorical Assessment Meetings.
As we grow and change, Clovis Unified remains committed to three organizational aims: maximizing student achievement, ensuring a safe and positive learning environment where CHARACTER COUNTS! and operating with increasing efficiency and effectiveness for all of our students. Underlying our aims are core beliefs that spur decision-making in our district. However, in this time of rapid change, one thing remains the same – the power of knowledge to change a child’s life. A high-quality teacher who cares about kids, a community that supports schools and leaders who plan for the future still make the difference in the lives of each student in our schools.
