As stated in the ESSA – 1304(d) Priority for Services statute, when providing services with MEP funds, LEAs must give priority to migratory children who have made a qualifying move within the previous one-year period and who (1) are failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet the challenging state academic standards; or (2) have dropped out of school.5 The PFS Action Plan articulates the criteria for addressing the plan for PFS students’ success and must be incorporated into a separate migrant-specific section of the DIP. It is the responsibility of the ESC serving as the fiscal agent to collaborate with the SSA Member Districts to create and implement a plan for serving PFS students within the SSA Member Districts’ boundaries.
- If the ESC creates the PFS Action Plan for the entire SSA, the ESC must send the PFS Action Plan to SSA Member Districts to include in the migrant-specific section of the DIP.
- If each SSA Member District creates the PFS Action Plan, a copy must be sent to the ESC.
