CASE MANAGEMENT 

CASE MANAGEMENT 

Through Case Management, Intervention Specialists (ISs) will provided support for low performing migrant students with the goal of helping them become successful. The target group of students for this service will be incoming 9th grade students who are identified as Priority for Service. Through the Student Needs Assessment and the Individualize Learning Plan, ISs will provide additional mentoring and support to students, and additional outreach to parents to ensure the students are making progress in school. The ISs will track students' progress as students participate in migrant and non-migrant intervention services in their schools, and review transcripts and progress reports with students and parents quarterly.  Students who are credit deficient and are at risk of not graduating will be referred to credit accrual and recovery services. Students will be encouraged to attend college visitations in order to break down cultural and language barriers and expose students to post-secondary education.
COLLEGE TUTOR PROGRAM 

COLLEGE TUTOR PROGRAM 

The Region 2 College Tutor Program assigns bilingual/bicultural college tutors to provide one-on-one or small group tutorial services to migrant children in the schools with the highest migrant student count during the school day and after school. College tutors work under the supervision of the classroom teacher and the College Coordinator to provide direct services in the areas, identified by the classroom teacher and Amplify DIBELs assessments, where migrant students need intensive intervention beyond the services provided by the school district staff. College Tutors may support students in Area and Regional programs to provide additional tutoring support.  
MIGRANT EDUCATION ADVISOR PROGRAM (MEAP) 

MIGRANT EDUCATION ADVISOR PROGRAM (MEAP) 

The Region 2 MEAP Program provides bilingual/bicultural college students who are preparing to become school counselors the opportunity to apply what they are learning in their college classes at local schools and develop the skills to become school counselors. The Migrant Education Advisors (MEAP Advisors) provide middle and high school migrant students the above and beyond individualized support many of the region’s migrant students need in order to stay in school. MEAP Advisors provide academic advising and intervention support, career guidance to develop career and educational goals, social and emotional support, and parent outreach to develop and strengthen the support system between the home and the school environment. MEAP may participate in supporting students in Area and Regional programs to provide additional supports to students. Middle and high school students participating in this program will increase credit accrual (if needed), GPA, and motivation to complete school and pursue higher education.
OUT OF SCHOOL YOUTH (OSY) TARGETED SUPPORT 

OUT OF SCHOOL YOUTH (OSY) TARGETED SUPPORT 

Classified and recruitment staff in each Area will coordinate to determine where OSY reside and the best time to serve them. Special attention is made to identify and serve any migrant student dropouts from the districts. Staff will use the INA and MLAP when working individually with OSY to determine the services and supports needed for each OSY with a focus on assisting OSY to access local health and educational resources within the communities they live. Staff will follow up with the OSY to ensure access to services and to track the OSY's progress. Staff may provide OSYs materials to participate in GED/HEP courses, English dictionaries to help students learn English, and health and hygiene supplies.

This service will provide six interactive health education academies for OSY's in targeted areas within the Region. The goal is to build their knowledge in the key topic areas including healthy eating, physical activity, chronic disease prevention, and/or mental health services.  Each three-hour academy will be designed to meet the unique needs of the OSY in each area. Community agencies such as Calagrability, California Human Development, Communicare, the local public library, HEP and adult education personnel will collaborate with Region 2 to provide meaningful and interactive presentations to OSY. 
OTHER EDUCATION, HEALTH, NUTRITION, AND SOCIAL SERVICES 

OTHER EDUCATION, HEALTH, NUTRITION, AND SOCIAL SERVICES 

Migrant staff determine how to best use low cost community resources to address emergency medical or dental needs of migrant families and limited emergency funds are provide by the Region when all other options are exhausted.  Migrant students may need emergency medical, dental care and hygiene products and supplies. Migrant staff will provide migrant students opportunities for free dental screening and will provide dental supplies and instruction on healthy dental care to migrant students in need of this service. Migrant students that have a health need documented on the Family Needs Assessment will be referred to the appropriate agency by the FSP, and the FSP will follow up with the family to confirm the service was received. Dental education presentations will be provided in a home-based setting based on needs documented on Family Needs Assessment. In order to support mental health education, the Region will seek out services through local agencies to provide training to parents and staff in the areas of promoting mental well-being and self-esteem, identifying the signs of depression, and coping with stress. A Counselor will work in close partnership with the Migrant Education staff to identify local mental health services within school districts, community organizations, and health care service providers in order to refer migrant students (including OSY) who present the need for appropriate mental health services. The Migrant Education Health Specialist will collaborate with the Parent Education Specialists and other classified staff to organize and facilitate health workshops for parents, students and staff that promote mental well-being and self-esteem; and help staff, parents and students recognize the signs of depression; and how to cope with stress. Migrant students with limited means and no other options to pay for health services will have the opportunity to request funding for reasonable and allowable Medical, Dental, Vision, Mental Health expenses as well as food or clothing. Migrant funding will be a short-term support while families find community and/or state resources to support their needs.
