Family Engagement

Parents, your involvement influences student academic success. Students with involved parents are more likely to get good grades, take more challenging classes, have better attendance, graduate and go to community or technical college or university. 

School Readiness

School success and the road to graduation begins with our student’s first experiences as learners.  Our Migrant Services team offers a variety of trainings and resources that support the professional development of districts and schools to support the school readiness of our migrant students. 

Dates and registration information for upcoming trainings are available on the NWESD Course Registration site. Our Migrant Services team always welcomes your questions.

Parent Leadership/Engagement

Work with your school district and school to implement programs and projects through the Parent Advisory Council (PAC).

Parent Advisory Council (PAC) advises the school district with concerns of migrant parent that relate to the Washington State Migrant Education Program. Parents are essential to the decision-making process of each district migrant program.

PAC Trainings are leadership trainings that will help build, strengthen and provide best practices to district migrant parent advisory council board officers. We have various training options.

State Advisory Council (SAC) The Washington Education State Advisory Committee (SAC) advises the Superintendent of Public Instruction on the delivery and effectiveness of the state’s programs and services that support migrant students and their families. For more information about the SAC, or to get involved, contact our MEP staff.
