Migrant Education Program-Region 21 Debuts New Location During Open House For Families

September 7, 2017 – Preparations by Janie Flores and the rest of the Migrant Education Program staff, with the assistance of various other BCSD Departments including those led by Steve McClain, David West, and Wade Derryberry led to a long awaited and exciting open house where Migrant students and their families were invited to take a look at the new home of Migrant Education Programs, Region 21 which is located on the corner of Baker and Monterey at 1121 Baker Street.  The open house, which took place on Friday, September 1, 2017 served to let parents know where to bring their children for upcoming events.   In addition, attendees were treated to a preview of programs, activities, services and other Migrant Education Program offerings planned for 2017-18.  Included in the evening was a recognition reception of all students who placed in the Association of Farmworkers Opportunity Program’s Children in the Fields Essay and Art Contest.
Though not fully completed, the new facility includes workspace for the Regional Program Staff as well as a dedicated PK learning space, a large Multi-Purpose Area and is representative of the craftsmanship and talents of those who represent BCSD facilities.  Did you miss the event?  Don’t worry!  There are photos below and the city wide grand opening will be held later in the Fall once the facility is fully completed.
