Title I, ESEA, Migrant Education Program Funding History.
Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (ED), Washington, DC. Migrant Education Programs.
From Fiscal Year (FY) 1967 through FY 1974, the allocation for each state's Title I migrant education grant was determined through a formula utilizing estimates of the migratory agricultural labor population of each state. Until the Migrant Student Record Transfer System was fully validated in FY 1975, there were no totally reliable counts of actual numbers or periods of residence of migratory children in each state. Revisions to allocation computation procedures occurred with the passage of Public Laws 90-247, 93-380, and 94-482. The allocation formula now operates as follows: (1) each state accumulates one residency day for each day that a migratory child is resident in that state; (2) a state's total of accumulated residency days is divided by 365; (3) each state total full-time-equivalent is then multiplied by 40% of the state's per pupil expenditure rate; (4) the computed amount then provides the total amount available for grant to each state. Individual state allocation totals provide the total national program allocation. The amount of funding is then taken 100% "off-the-top" of the total Title I authorization. Allocations have increased from $9,737,847 for 169,910 children in FY 1967 to $245,000,000 for 369,182 children in FY 1981. (NEC)
