Bilingual and Migrant
Helping students meet high academic challenges by overcoming obstacles
Kennewick School District's Migrant and Bilingual office oversees the state and federal programs that help migrant students and youth in our district meet high academic challenges by overcoming obstacles created by frequent moves, educational disruption, cultural and language differences, and health-related problems.
The Washington State Migrant Education Program provides services to migrant children and their families. The program is federally funded as part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title I, Part C.
TBIP and Title III provide funds to local education agencies to ensure equal educational opportunities for students whose primary language is other than English.
The WA Proficiency Level Descriptors and English Language Proficiency Standards are designed to be used by classroom teachers and ELL specialists alike. The Washington ELP Standards provide correspondences to Mathematics, Science, and ELA Practices as well as explicit correspondences to the Common Core ELA and Literacy Standards.
