The 2019 Novel Coronavirus pandemic has impacted migrant program identification and recruitment (ID&R) efforts throughout Florida. To address the challenges imposed on ID&R by the pandemic, the Florida Migrant Education Program and the ID&R Office have developed a special Certificate of Eligibility (COE) Completion protocol that allows the COE to be completed via phone or video interview. This will let recruiters continue their work while maintaining their own safety as well as the safety of our migrant families. Every person completing the COE must follow the COVID-19 COE Protocol as outlined in the document.

Re-Interview -

The purpose of the re-interview process is to verify that a proper and timely eligibility determination of a student and/or out-of-school youth was made based on the Florida Migrant Education Program regulations and guidance. NOTE - The 2020-2021 Re-interview protocol, re-interview form, and re-interview reporting form are effective September 1, 2020.
