More than 300 migrant parents from throughout Monterey County have been invited to participate in La Familia Conference where participants will have the opportunity to learn about community services, health and mental education, and higher education.
"The primary purpose of this opportunity is to engage families in learning about critical issues in their students' education. The ultimate goal is to assure their children's academic success in our public schools," said Rosa Coronado, Program Director II, Monterey County Office of Education, Migrant Education Program, Region XVI.
This conference is free to migrant parents. Continental breakfast and lunch will be served. Migrant Education Program pre-school teachers will provide a curriculum of child educational activities to those attending with their parents. Parents wishing to attend MUST pre-register with their school district migrant education personnel no later than Friday, April 6.
