Migrant families continuously arrive at schools throughout the nation seeking to enroll their children while they harvest seasonal crops. The partnerships between migrant education, school districts, and migrant housing centers leaders share the responsibility of educating migrant children. The United States Office of Migrant Education (OME) funds the Migrant Education Program (MEP) through the California (CA) or State Educational Agency (SEA) with regional subgrantees who partner with school districts as local educational agencies (LEA) to supplement the education of migrant students that has been mandated for the last half-century. This partnership work is sustained by the advocacy of its champions. The purpose of this study is to understand the characteristics and the work of champions for partnerships that include the state MEP, a regional MEP, an LEA, and a migrant housing center (MHC) in the state of California. Many migrant families live in MHCs, arriving in May and leaving in November. By using a qualitative multiple case study approach, we can better understand how to strengthen the partnership between districts and migrant education to better serve migrant students and their families.
