Dare to Dream Dare to Dream Academic Academy Targeting 160 currently enrolled 10 th and 11 th grade migrant students moving into 11 th and 12 th grade Partnership with: WSU (Math and Science) – 2 sessions CWU (Science) UW (Science)
Dare to Dream Dare to Dream Academic Academy Program Outcomes: Identify current knowledge level of math or science Learn new skills and abilities in the area of math or science Identify career paths in the areas of math or science Learn about the fields of study in math or science Identify course needed to graduate from high school, how to request support Share academy experience with Parent Advisory Council, other students, and local community Earn.5 credit in math or science (AWSP Unified Science II 03202; Informal Mathematics II 02001) Recorded in MSIS as supplemental service instructional math or science
Dare to Dream Academic Academy AWSP Course: Unified Science II Unified Science courses combine more than one branch of science into a cohesive study or may integrate science with another discipline. General scientific concepts are explored, as are the principles underlying the scientific method and experimentation techniques. AWSP Course: Informal Mathematics II Informal Mathematics courses emphasize the teaching of mathematics as problem solving, communication, and reasoning, and highlight the connections among mathematical topics and between mathematics and other disciplines. These courses approach the teaching of general math, pre-algebra, and pre-geometry topics by applying numbers, and algebraic and geometric concepts and relationships to real world problems.
Association of Washington School Principals Helped set the tone for each day. Provided on-going guidance to University instructors and/or led portions of the instruction. Reviewed student journals every night to see if concepts were being understood by students and to ensure students were capturing the instruction. Provided comment or feedback to students in journals. Worked with university staff if some students appeared to need additional supports.

Binational Teacher Exchange To reinforce knowledge about the history, culture, values and national traditions of Mexican origin students who live in the US; strengthening their identity and improving their education. To encourage ongoing communication between US and Mexican teachers in order to share educational experiences that promote continuity of educational practices. To improve the educational services offered to the Mexican and Mexican descendent school population living in the US through the binational teacher exchange program.
Binational Teacher Exchange Timeline
InET (Innovative Educational Technologies) Migrant educators and administrators in the states with the most experience in binational migrant programs identified concerns for binational migrant students as described below. Missing school because they lack proper paperwork (e.g., Apostille, Certificate of Completion from Mexico, Transfer Document). Lacking credits for coursework completed (i.e., reciprocity in credit transfer). Having less time for instruction resulting in poor achievement due to high mobility. Lacking access to technology to help students succeed and stay in school. Falling behind in language development. When in the U.S., binational students’ lack of English proficiency puts them behind their peers; when returning to Mexico, binational students’ lack of Spanish proficiency puts them behind their peers. Accessing educational and community services when making frequent international moves is difficult and often results in educational and social isolation. Training is needed for instructors on the binational migrant lifestyle and for effective strategies for this population which results in more effective instruction
CONEVyT One of the highlights of this program is the scheduling flexibility to offer courses and classes that will meet the needs of the students regardless of geographic location. Plazas Comunitarias are not exclusive to the educational programs offered on their online menus but offer the flexibility for schools, institutions, and groups involved in the Plazas Comunitarias to provide additional programs and resources deemed necessary. They complement the educational requirements of their communities. In addition, this program is free of charge to those 15 years of age and older regardless of their country of origin. Each Plaza Comunitaria selects the services it will provide. It can offer a specific service and, as the need arises, augment it by adding and integrating other services and offerings based on the needs of the community and the resources available.
CONEVyT Getting Started, two options: 1. Become a Plaza Comunitaria or 2. Become a member of an existing Plaza Comunitaria. To become a Plaza Comunitaria, contact the Migrant Education Program at OSPI (Terrie Beckman) so she may work with Mexican Consulate for technology and training logistics. To become a member of an existing Plaza, contact the Plaza’s in the handout.
Out-of-School Youth What is the definition of “out-of-school youth?” Are such youth eligible for MEP services? (Office of Migrant Education Non-Regulatory Guidance, 2010) For the purposes of the MEP, the Department considers the term “out-of-school youth” to mean youth up through age 21 who are entitled to a free public education in the State and who meet the definition of “migratory child,” but who are not currently enrolled in a K-12 school. This could include students who have dropped out of school, youth who are working on a general education development credential (GED) outside of a K-12 school, and youth who are “here-to-work” only. It would not include children in preschool. Out-of-school youth who meet the definition of a “migratory child” as well as all other MEP eligibility criteria are eligible for the MEP.
Out-of-School Youth Students ages Recover back into high school Refer to other services – GED, HEP, ESL, etc. Facilitate access to social support services, especially to those “here-to-work” MSIS Report – Student List MSDRS OSY Facilitator work with Non-Project SDs
