Migrant Education Summer Updates

From the Migrant Education Program Newsletter:

Summer Migrant Student Leadership   
A number of local migrant middle and high school students participated in leadership camps this summer at Oregon State University and at OSU Extension Services’ 4‐H Camp. The migrant high school students spent five days on campus at OSU where they developed leadership skills and were exposed to the college environment. The migrant middle school students spent four days acquiring leadership skills and learning about post‐secondary opportunities, technology and the outdoors.
Migrant Program to Add Two New Positions   
Soon we will welcome two new members to the Region 26 Migrant Education Program, which serves Centennial, Corbett, David Douglas, Gresham Barlow, Parkrose, and Reynolds School Districts. These individuals will support migrant students and families, one as a graduation specialist and the other as a family engagement specialist. Expect more information to come about new services we will be offering during the 2017‐18 school year.
