In recent months, Missouri’s Title III and Migrant programs have been monitored by representatives of the US Department of Education’s Office of Migrant Education and the Title III office. In response to those visits and other program needs, DESE will offer a series of meetings designed to clarify the current program requirements and outline upcoming program changes.
