  •  Migrant 2

    Dear Migrant Family,

    The OMESC is working on the planning of a successful VIRTUAL Migrant Education Program Conference scheduled for Friday, November 5 from 8:15am to 4:00pm, the VIRTUAL Migrant Parent Institute on the morning of Saturday, November 6, and VIRTUAL Migrant Youth Forum from 1:00pm to 4:00pm PDT. The migrant staff have specific sessions designed just for them on Friday, November 5; however, they are welcome to join parents and youth on Saturday, November 6. Parents are attending the morning session and are welcome to join the afternoon session for students in grades 6 through 12. 

    All events are Pacific Daylight Time and registration for the three events are open!  We are working as a team and here are the people who oversee the registrations: 

    We are still working on a DRAFT agenda for the three events. We are still waiting to hear from community members, organizations, and colleges to finalize their presenters at the designated session slots. We expect to update and finalize all agendas soon! More information to follow by next week! Please follow the links to access flyers to share with your migrant colleagues, parents, and students. 

The Migrant Spirit

  • Dear Migrant Family,

    Rosa Gilbert, Migrant Education Program Director of Northwest Regional ESD shared this wonderfull video with everyone. Please read her message.



    I'm emailing to share and celebrate a video about one of our families in region 6, the Lopez family. 


    At our annual kickoff with all Northwest Regional ESD staff, we enlisted Alejandra, a student in the Migrant Education Program to welcome educators. This story represents the culmination of multiple years of developing a supportive, reciprocal relationship with her family.

    Alejandra and her family volunteered to tell a very personal story to hundreds of strangers in large part because of the trust they have in Rosa and Amanda to carry their message forward with integrity.

    The point of sharing this video with the 600+ staff at NWRESD and the wider community is to set the expectation that we listen deeply to student and family experiences and needs as we jump into the school year, especially in the context of this global pandemic.

    Alejandra’s telling of her story models courage. Her story is the story of many of the students we serve as part of the Title 1C program.  Watch - The Migrant Spirit.


    Espero que lo disfruten,
