Migrant Education Program
What is Migrant Education?
The Migrant Education Program serves students who travel outside the Anchorage School District boundaries to engage in seasonal fishing or agricultural activities. The usual activity of families in the Anchorage area is fishing and can be either commercial or subsistence.
The Anchorage School District Migrant Education Program is federally funded and provides activities, services and resources for Migrant students and their families.
Our goals are to help Migrant children develop to their fullest academic and social potential and to provide learning opportunities for success in life. These goals will assist students in becoming self-sufficient members of our community.
