In accordance with the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965, reauthorized in 2015 as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), state education agencies (SEAs) are required to submit to the U.S. Department of Education in their Consolidated State Plan, the long-term goals and measurements of interim progress that are designed to improve the academic achievement of all children in their state.

States are required by ESSA to develop a migratory-specific service delivery plan (SDP) to detail how they will help migratory children make progress toward achievement of the state’s long-term goals and measurements of interim progress. The SDP is a statewide plan that describes the services the SEA will provide directly or through local operating agencies (LOAs) to meet the unique needs of migratory children.

Every Kansas Migrant Education Program (MEP) is required to maintain a list of eligible migrant students as well as a listing of the students actually receiving migrant services. The eligibility list should indicate whether or not a student is determined to be a Priority for Services student. The PFS Form is intended to serve as documentation for audit purposes and to assist the MEP in determining which migrant students should receive services first.


The CNA document describes the needs of migratory children eligible for the Kansas MEP and proposes solutions to meet those needs. It was completed with input from a committee of stakeholders from Kansas and a consultant with knowledge of the process and procedures for conducting and facilitating CNA meetings. Stakeholders included Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) MEP staff, MEP administrative staff; teachers; recruiters; experts in literacy, math, and technology education; migratory students; and parents/guardians of migratory children (see the Needs Assessment Committee (NAC) membership list at the beginning of the report).
This CNA report provides an overview of the processes and procedures used for coming to conclusions as well as an action plan with recommended solutions and interventions that aim to close the gaps between where Kansas’ migratory children/youth are now and where the NAC believes they should be.
